CDS Key is GENERATED_ID instead of key specified

I am using Fiori List Report Template. Many views involved, but the issue is with the top level TOTALS View ZDDL_FI_C_OPEX.

I have defined the KEY to that view as: KEY: GJAHR + MONAT + KOSTL + HKONT

This view has an association to drill down into the docs that make up that Total (KEY: GJAHR+BUKRS+BELNR+BUZEI)

However CDS View below is creating a GENERATED_ID as the KEY to the Totals view, which breaks the drill down into _items.

Anyone have an idea on how to handle this?

    Why I know it is the generated_id

    Front-End; called OPEX2..because I recreated it to see if cache was a problem

    Back-End (doesn't expect generated_ID)

    Partially solved my problem. When I remove @DefaultAggregation: #SUM, the GENERATED_ID is replaced by my specified KEY, and the Association to _line works! -- but why? Now I have modify something in WebIDE to make it a Grid report again....

    Anyone? Bueller?
