Hi Experts,

I have configured smart table with oData service having vocabulary annotaions. Now we want to enable variant management for smart Table which will enable by providing the 'persistencyKey' for the Table.

Can any one explain the process creating the 'persistencyKey' which can be used by smart table.

Thanks in advance..

Hi Jerry,

For which scenario you are using Smart Variant.

Variant management as know enables to save inputs or filter based on individual user. For this you need to provide a unique name(Can be any specific) at persistence key parameter, this will enables the variant management once you deploy into launchpad.

Hi Mahi,

This is the official SAPUI5 documentation on Smart Variant Management. There you will see that "percistencyKey" is the value for keyName that is used internally by the backend system to store the search variant ID. Once your UI sends a POST to store the variant, it sends its Name to the OData service. This in turn generates a key (GUID) for the variant that would be specific to the logged on user (same concept as saving variants on SAPGui). When you reload the UI, the Smart Table will retrieve all variants for the logged on user and display them. If you ever need to edit some of them the OData will send the GUID instead of a name.

Hope this clarifies.
