Read Master Data option not available in OHD transformations
* Scenario explained below has been carried out in SAP BI release 701 level 8.
Scenario : Open Hub Destination needs to be created based on the infocube with output as file.
Problem faced : Base infocube doesn’t have value for the field ZCUPCBAR, which is an attribute of 0MATERIAL.
as per the usual practice , I searched Read Master Data option in transformations but I couldn’t find the option. As shown in above screen shot, there are only 5 options to set the rule type for infoobject.
Solution : to overcome the situation, I’ve used ABAP code to read attribute value from master data table in the end routine and populated the required field.
* Question : what can be the exact reason for not providing Read Master Data option in rule type of OHD transformation?
