Model names with mixed case

This document is prepared based on SAP HANA Version SPS05 Revision 47.

While creating the information views (Attribute/Analytic/Calculation) in the name field we will give the name of the view. By default it accepts the name in uppercase only, even your keyboard caps lock in on/off.

Can we have the name of information view in mixed case (combination of both upper and/or lowercase)? As usual the answer is Yes but with small setting.

Go to menu Windows -> Preferences -> Expand Modeler -> Select Case Restriction.

By default the checkbox is ticked for “Model name in uppercase“. This restricts the model to accept name in uppercase only irrespective of your keyboard caps lock is on/off.

To allow mixed or lowercase, uncheck this box, click apply and ok and try again naming your model. This time it accepts the way you type it.

Similarly it applies to naming Analytic privileges and Procedures.


For packages it always accept name in lowercase and for Decision Table always in uppercase only and no setting yet available to name in mixed case.

Thank You.

      Raj,

      I tried with the case restrictions and it worked. Thanks for the information.

      Hi Raj,

      Just want to add a note on what you have explained.

      When you export the packages, it creates the folders in your system, You can make it upper case in the folder name and import the package.

      Then you can achieve upper case for package as well.

      For Views, you can even edit XML files generated at the backend and import. Even with the above check box you can still have mixed case.

      Regards,

      Krishna Tangudu

      Thanks for the note. It provided me heads up where to change so that View name appears in Lower case.

      However , it appears under View and Field Name Preferences in Preferences in latest HANA Studio version.
