Renaming BOPF-generated structures and classes

Hi all,

in my current project we're using the new programming model and thus are creating BOPF entities that are generated by CDS views.

By activating the CDS view that generates a BOPF object, all inherited BOPF structures are generated aswell. As we develop software in a customer namespace, the customer namespace prefix is correctly used for every generated object.

But we also structure our software using ABAP packages and we built naming conventions for every development object like the following: <customer namespace><ABAP package>_[description]. But when it comes to generated objects, it does not exactly work.

/ACME/S_DS01_I_DOCC (note: /ACME/ = namespace; DS01 = package)
as opposed to

Do you know any way of influencing the naming of generated structures or classes?

Hello Dominik,

there is no functionality available to influence the naming of the generated structures/tables that are derived from CDS view. However the naming of action/determination/validation implementing classes can be influenced while creation.

Best regards
