Multiprovider to HANA Composite Provider Migration - force Navigational Attributes

Hello,

as described in Note 2080851 - Conversion of MultiProvider to CompositeProvider there is a program RSO_CONVERT_IPRO_TO_HCPR to migrate an existing Multiprovider to (MPRO) the new Hana Composite Provider (HCPR).

The migration of MPRO -navigational attributes is only working if the following condition is met:

[...] the navigation attributes from all PartProviders must be supplied by a navigation attribute from which the characteristic bearing the navigation attribute is also supplied.

In some cases we currently have the situation that a navigational attribute is ticked on in the MPRO, but not assigned to all part-providers, because the Main-IOBJ doesn't exist in the Partprovider.

In this case, the NavAtt MAIN_IOBJ__ATTR will be migrated by the program to a new field HCPR_ATTR with the same assignment on HANA level.

Is there any possibility to force Navigational Attribute migration to the "real" navigational attribute in this case?

Best regards

Moritz

    Before conversion, run a check on your MultiProvider. Most likely you have warnings which subsequently lead to the use of the described global object.

    If you are able to adjust your MultiProvider in a way to get rid of those warnings, you will most likely get rid of those new global objects. Usually this involves activation of navigational attributes in some/all InfoProviders/InfoObject in order to allign the way they get queried. Note there are constellations that may not be able to be resolved in the described way.
