Consuming CDS views via Analysis for Office

Hi All,

I was trying to consume some standard CDS views via analysis for office and realized that only dataCategory: #CUBE views can be consumed. My question is that in CDS, the final consumption view is never a cube but the one below it is. So do we always provide the second to last CUBE view in the flow to the A4O user rather than the final consumption view?

    Shyam,

    did you check this blog: https://blogs.sap.com/2017/05/12/consumption-of-cds-views-in-analysis-for-office/

    I did a test for training purposes last year, and it worked properly.

    Best, FM

    • Thank you for your reply.

      Unfortunately, I can't seem to find any consumption view in the A4O when I search but I can find all of the views under the consumption view which had @Analytics.dataCategory: #CUBE . So my question is - What annotations allow these views to be available in A4O? I created a custom CDS with @Analytics.dataCategory: #CUBE but that doesn't seem to come up in A4O. I see similar questions in the comments section of the post you mentioned there.
