Action and CDS CRUD Implementation with Fiori Smart template

I'm trying 2 things but facing issues in both the cases.

=> Creating a line item or list report action which will trigger a BOPF action

=> Implementing a CRUD scenario in Fiori Smart template

1. I am able to generate actions based on CDS view and BOPF using smart template when I click on the button generated by action it is saying missing function import.

my annotation is given below

@UI.lineItem: [

-- Standard Lineitem

{ position: 7 },

-- Action Lineitem


{ type: #FOR_ACTION, dataAction: 'BOPF:COPY', label: 'Copy' }


the annotation file content in WEB IDE is given below

<Record Type="UI.DataFieldForAction">

<PropertyValue Property="Label" String="Copy"/>

<PropertyValue Property="Action" String=""/>

<Annotation Term="UI.OperationGrouping" EnumMember="UI.OperationGroupingType/Isolated"/>


So, I have created the action in BOPF but the smart template is showing the error saying that it is missing function import

Question a: Why it is expecting a function import even when action is defined as BOPF action.

Question b. Can we create any function import while generating the Odata service using annotation, @Odata.publish : true or we have to generate the ODATA using a Reference Data Source

2.If we need to address Fiori Smart Template with CRUD scenario, can I use the option @Odata.publish : true or we have to use the technique "n Generating an OData Service Based on a Referenced Data Source. " Also looking for documentation draft persistence programming model

Any links/pdfs will highly be appreciated, Many thanks.
