About this task
This section shows you how to create an SAP CDS view metadata entry by retrieving information of an existing SAP CDS view using the SAP metadata wizard. This section assumes that the SAP connection and the SAP CDS views under the SAP connection already exist.
In the Repository tree view, right-click the SAP connection
and select Retrieve SAP CDS View from the contextual menu. The
SAP CDS View wizard dialog box opens up.
In the Name and Description fields,
enter the filter condition for the SAP CDS view name or SAP CDS view description if
needed and click Search.
All the SAP CDS views that meet the filter condition will be listed in the table.
- Select the SAP CDS view based on which the metadata entry is to be generated by selecting the corresponding check box in the Name column.
Click Next to proceed to the next
The second page of the wizard appears, where the name of the SAP CDS view to be created is highlighted in the CDS View Name section; the fields of the SAP CDS view to be created are listed in the Fields table; and the parameters of the SAP CDS view to be created are listed in the Parameters table.
Modify the settings of the fields and the parameters as needed and click
The SAP CDS view metadata entry is created under the SAP connection in the Repository tree view. You can now drag and drop the SAP CDS view metadata entry onto your Job design workspace to create a new tSAPTableInput component instance or onto an existing tELTSAPMap component instance in the Job design workspace to synchronize the CDS view parameters.
