    Hi Navaneeth,

    I hope you are having a good day, I have performed some research on the specific 'Aggregation Behavior' you mentioned and I could find some documentation regarding it in our Help Portal, kindly check this documentation by following this link:

    Regarding the Counter field, which is a standard field added to every custom and standard Data Source in the system, this value currently represents the number of records that are stored in your custom Data Source or in a SAP Standard Data Source.

    For example, if I have 10 accounts created in my Cloud for Customer system, when I access my custom report 'System Accounts' without adding any other field in the Data Source preview, the counter field will display the value '10', which represents the number of accounts that are being maintained in my system.

    I hope this explanation as well as the documentation I mentioned earlier can clarify this specific system behavior for you :)
