ABAP on-premise code to cloud movement : How can we dynamically generate the "Custom Entity"

Dear Experts, Is there a process to dynamically generate the Custom Entity instead of doing manual definition in ABAP at SCP(something like what we can do in Native HANA, to generate DDICs).This will then help us to use RAP generator, to create automatic service definitions and binding over it.

Thanks is advance ,

    Hi Balwant,

    I am not sure whether I got your requirement correctly.

    Are you looking for an option that would

    a) create a table alongside with a CDS view and based on this have a RAP service being generated or

    b) are you really looking for a custom entity (which does not read the data from a datasource but is using an ABAP class that implements the query).

    See here Custom Entity - SAP Online Helpm or here Tutorial Custom Entity

    I am not sure whether you mixed up the term "custom entity" with the term "custom build entity".

    Best Regards,
