Call External REST API from HANA models via XS Engine

Dear expert , In need of your advise on how to call external REST API in SAP HANA model . I am aware that it is possible to call outbound REST API from XS layer and then it can be updated in to a table using XSJS . But i would like to access this external data in real time inside HANA model ( say calculation view ) to mashup with other existing data . Then this model is being consumed in a reporting tool for analytics in real time.

Please share your thoughts

    It is not possible to use an XSJS service which calls an outbound REST API within a calculation view. One way to integrate your data is using SAP HANA Smart Data Integration. You can check if already a fitting adapter exists for your source or if you have to write your own adapter. Details can be found (as always) in the official documentation: SAP HANA Smart Data Integration
