SAP Analytics Cloud - Data integration in Hana view models

Oct 19, 2017 at 12:18 PM

We are working with a live connection to Hana, creating models from Hana calculated views. There is no posible mapping between the dimensions in our views and the dimension types offered by Analytics Cloud. Is there anything we can do to sort this out? It limits our work afterwards because there are some charts we cant build properly without a Time dimension for example. Also we cant indicate ID + Description of one dimension at a time.

Thank you.

Hi Florencia Robledo ,

You are correct, there is currently a limitation on how we handle time dimensions in Live HANA models. The usual drilling that you are able to do in planning and imported models are not available for HANA Live models. I updated the KBA that indicates the limitations using HANA Live connections.

Developers are working on this feature as we speak.

Depending on your needs, you can include year, quarter, month, etc. as a separate dimensions in your HANA Calculation View.

This blog illustrates how to do it:

It seems that the part 1 was not migrated correctly from the previous SCN but I hope you get the idea.
