Extended node in Analytics

From 1511 release onwards it is possible to include extended node in the Datasource as mentioned at: with Description “Node Extensions -Usage in Analytics”.

But, the extended node cannot be enhanced into the standard datasource, you could instead :

create new datasource on the Standard BusinessObject and

then join the custom datasource with the standard datasource.

      Hi @pradeep kumar N

      Thanks for sharing information.

      I just wonder SAP introduced node extension in Standard XBO, but these node field are not extensible for DS, Forms, Process extension scenario. ..!! What could be actual use case of enabling node declaration in std XBO in terms of technical stand point..?? rather than this approach we could go for custom  BO..!!  😐 what is your view point node extension is better than custom BO approaches..??

      Hi Naveen Kumar N,

      Node extension in standard BO (XBO) was released in 1508 release,

      and in release 1511 extended node was made available in Custom Datasource.

      Like wise enhancements are made incrementally to include new feature in the future releases.

      Product management has to take decision to make it available in the standard datasource and to other content types so that it would be made available in the future releases.

      Thanks, Pradeep.
