Connection of XML with HANA

When first time, i logged onto the HANA Environment right away after the Teched – the reaction was a WoW!!!

But when it became a part and parcel of my life and then i started comparing it with my core BW transaction codes and the respective ABAP logs.

Learning a new tool is of course interesting and it’s equally boring when you get stucked somewhere during the learning phase.

One of the incident i am here going to share is  “Connection of XML with HANA” which was very new to me.

One fine day, when i was trying to activate my Analytics View it was keep on failing and there my interest was not to read/understand the XML log but to find out why it’s been failing . My impression as a core BW consultant was – reading the ABAP dump, fixing it, going through the trace file were more easier  then understanding the XML code. But later i found it very simple when i understood XML.

Here are the ways, how any one could proceed with XML log in HANA Studio

First of all we have to collapse all the nodes. It looks like this:


Then let’s see the Job Info node, where we will get the information on Start Date, End Date,Elapsed Time, System Details and Result of the whole Job.


Next is to get into the Execution Info Node where it gives Status of the Activation Job.


Then we could see a validation process hast started at Client Side:


The validation process carried out as per the Rules set for Models in HANA studio.

You could navigate to  HANA Studio -> Window -> Preferences -> Modeler -> Validation Rule to see the list of rules


Then we could go back to XML log of the failed activation and expand the further message nodes to see “status” of each rules.

Below screenshot shows some of them where the status message were “OK”.


But here is  one of the message where the step has failed with status as “Error”XML7.png

After the Client side validation is through, now the log shows the status at Server side as well.


Hope it will help the Community 🙂
