Timedependent hierarchy - show validity time intervall in query and AfO

Hallo Community,

I have an InfoObject which I defined as InfoProvider.
The Master Data and Text informations are not time-dependet.
But I use a time-dependent Hierarchy with 'temporal Hierarchy Join'.

Now I build a Query on that InfoObject to create a Masterdata Report on all Masterdata inkl. all Attributes.
I´m also displaying the time-dependent Hierarchy based on a Customer Exit

for Hierarchy validity Date.
My issue is, that I can´t find any way to display the validity time intervall for each Hierarchy-Node and Leaf with that Query, neither in Analysis for Excel nor in BEx Analyzer.

Does anybody know how to display the mentioned time intervalls of an time-dependent hierarchy in AfO?

Many Thanks in advance

Hello Georg,

I don't think that this is possible since the InfoObject based InfoProvider is always read with the key date contained in the query. You would need characteristics like 0DATEFROM, 0DATETO in the InfoProvider but the InfoObject as InfoProvider does not have these characteristics: the system only read the part that fits to the key date.

One approach may be to implement your own InfoProvider and inside this Infoprovider you use APIs to read master data and hierarchy information. Check package RSNDI to read (and also write) master data and hierarchies.
