HANA 2.0 XSA Web IDE - How do I access a S/4 table (such as T001) from my HDI container?

Using the SAP Web IDE for SAP HANA in an on-premise S/4 HANA system running HANA 2.0, how do I create a CDS view in my HDI container on top of a standard S/4 table, such as T001? My admin has already granted my ID access to the S/4 schema, so I can see the S/4 tables in the Database Explorer tool, but I am not sure what files I will need in my database module to reference S/4 tables.

    Hm, I think you missed to check the official documentation. Please check Using Synonyms to Access External Schemas and Objects in XS Advanced

      Using an odata service via SAP Gateway is not really recommend, because of some drawbacks, e.g.

      • Slower than direct access via standard approach.
      • Dependency to the Gateway system (system must be up and running; where do you configure to which Gateway system your app will connect (already and issue if you think about a Dev - QA - Prod landscape).
