We are very happy to announce that HANA Rules Framework 1.00 SP07 is now available!
Here are the main highlights of this release:
New user management and authorization mechanism:
User management for SAP HANA rules framework (HRF) is now based on a set of application privileges, which provide a unique level of access to various functions within SAP HANA rules framework.
This new mechanism leverages the common SAP practice of using a technical user to access SAP HANA database artifacts.
‘current’ generated as a part of a term in the rule expression language (REL):
‘current’ (as indication for the data object in context of the rule) is now generated as a part of a term in the HRF rule expression language. Syntax: <attribute> of the current <data object> For example, instead of annual_income of the customer >= average of annual_income of all customers where country = current country of the customer, the syntax is now annual_income of the customer >= average of annual_income of all customers where country = country of current customer.
Value-list based rules are no longer description-dependent:
As of this release, using an expression that is based on a value-description list allows the following:
- Upon activation of the rule, the rule becomes autonomous. In other words, values in the description column can be updated in the origin master data tables/views at any time.
- Viewing/editing such rules will always provide the current description as appears in the origin view/table of the value list, regardless of the description given at the time of the activation.
