CCL Identifier is a keyword

I am experimenting with Reference Elements in Smart Data Streaming.

However, when I pull a table's reference onto the canvas, I see that it throws an error which reads "CCL Identifier is a keyword".

The reference element looks like (below) on the canvas while "model" seems to be highlighted in red.

I am not sure what could be the error here as to the best of my knowledge, I haven't made of any identifier names in this element.

Please advise.

Hmmmm, "model" isn't currently listed in the documentation as a keyword: Appendix: List of Keywords I expect that is a documentation bug as "model" was likely introduced as a keyword when we added the machine learning functions (Hoeffding Tree and Denstream Clustering) in SPS11.

CCL doesn't let you use keywords as identifiers, even if you quote them like you could in SQL, so assuming that I can confirm that "model" is now a keyword, that will explain the error..

Alright, I was able to confirm with Engineering that MODEL was introduced as a keyword in SPS11. We will get the documentation updated to include MODEL in the list of keywords.

You might also want to submit an enhancement request through the HANA Advanced Analyst section of Idea Place to have CCL support the use of keywords as identifiers. Idea Place - SAP HANA Platform - Advanced Analyst

Thank you for the confirmation, Robert! That helped.

The link takes me to a page where I can see " It looks like you don't have access to "SAP HANA Platform " and I do not see the topic SAP HANA Platform listed in the SAP Idea Place either. Is it documented under any other title now or are they not accepting any ideas through that channel?


Try going just to the HANA Platform home in Idea Place:


Nope. It doesn't allow me. :(
