M_SYSTEM_LIMITS view provides the system capabilities. For example


, this setting is for Number of joined tables in an SQL statement or view and the default is 255.

Is there any way to change this default value? I tried adding this parameter in configuration section for Index server --> sql section but it does not work.

I am trying to limit the number of tables that can be used in any join across the hana system.

Any advice is appreciated.

The view provides information on limitations of the installed HANA software. These limits cannot be changed by parameters.

Out of interest: what kind of data model requires more than 255 joins in a single statement? Is that a EAV/OTLT/MUCK design ( ?

Thank you Lars. I am not trying to increase the joins and trying to limit it. I created a calculation view that joins around 30 tables and 800 columns for the UI/Lumira to build query dynamically. My intend is for UI/Lumira to limit the number of columns/tables they use in a single query using this calculation view. For any reason if they use all 800 columns and fire a query/create a table chart in lumira, it will bring down the system. Instead I want to limit this to for example at max of 50 columns and 10 tables in any query that runs on the application.

Pl. advice
