    Hi,

    A)
    A1)
    Search and run the App "View Browser"
    A2)
    Get the "Name" of the CDS View

    A3)
    Get the CDS View "Name" as described in Section C), Step 5) ...20)


    B)

    Its quicker done via a self build CDS View or SE11 View which joins the metadata.
    Numerous samples can be found in answers.sap.com.

    C)
    This answer describes the path to locate a CDS View in a package via HANA Studio and ABAP Search.

    C)
    3 Phases:
    -Search in SAP Fiori Library to get the CDS Definition
    -Search in the ABAP to get the CDS Views name derivated from the ODATA definition
    -Locate the CDS View in the System Library

    1)
    https://fioriappslibrary.hana.ondemand.com/sap/fix/externalViewer/index.html

    2)
    Search for the Application, here: "Planned Order"

    3)
    / Tab "IMPLEMENTATION INFORMATION"
    Analyse and find out whats the underlying
    ODATA delivering information
    In this sample we use
    "Business Process Activities"

    4)
    /Configuration/ Section OData Service(s)
    OData Service=C_PROCMONFLOW_CDS

    /Configuration/SAPUI5 Application/Path to ICF Node=/sap/bc/ui5_ui5/sap/POB_O2C_MONS1

    5)
    Hana Studio

    6)
    ....in case make a ABAP Project on the SID

    7)
    /HANA Studio/Search/Tab ABAP Object Search
    Enter C_PROCMONFLOW (Standard Ntation without _CDS Postfix)
    or *PROCMONFLOW*

    8)
    Check for CDS Definitions and open the one which adheres to the nameing

    convention. In this release and sample we used: "C_PROCMONFLOW"

    9)
    In CDS View C_PROCMONFLOW
    /Navigate to Target : @AbapCatalog.sqlViewName: 'V_MRP_PLAN_ORD'

    10)
    Get Package name
    /Tab Attributes: "ODATA_PP_MRP"

    11)
    Locate Superpackages, here
    ODATA_PP
    APPL

    12)
    Open /HANA Studio/<Your SID>/System Library/Package:APPL

    13)
    Drill down to
    /APPL/ODATA_PP/ODATA_PP_MRP

    14)
    Open Folder Core Data Services

    15)
    Locate CDS from above
    In this release and sample: "C_PROCMONFLOW"

    16)
    Find Line "@OData.publish: true"
    Hit "G" In Front

    17)
    Hit /Generated Object/O-Data Service

    18)
    Check ODATA String with Excel or Other

    19)
    Check CDS View with Display Data

    20)
    Be aware of the CDS Namenconventions for VDM
    (C_, I_, ...)

    21)
    Get to know CDS View Annotations systematics and CDS View Enhancement techniques..

    .

    Best Martin
