Hello experts!

I am looking for a way to consume an Open ODS view (or a composit provider) with ABAP CDS.

Is this possible?

Any Ideas?

Thanks in advance br. Otto

As documented, only data sources defined in the ABAP Dictionary can be used in ABAP CDS views. If Open ODS generates dictionary objects, you might access those, but I'm not sure if this is the case or if they are dedicated for such an access (see SAP Note 2198480).

With ABAP CDS table functions implemented in AMDP you should be able to access the ODS artifacts on the DB, but again, the question is, if this supported by the ODS framework. In Open SQL, we don't want you to access its artifacts.
