How to traverse hierarchical data in SAP HANA

160 Views Last edit Dec 19, 2016 at 02:09 PM 3 rev


We are storing hierarchical data in a table called ENTITY(ENTITY_ID, ENTITY_NAME, PARENT_ENTITY_ID). In SQL server, we are using the recursive CTE to select all the childs/parents records. Refer the attachment 'Entity Table'. entity-table.png. However this is not supported in SAP HANA.

Could you please let me know the equivalent for this?

Also, Is there any better way to traverse the hierarchy in SAP HANA?
