S/4HANA 1503 HANA Live Views Grouping Related Measures with folders
One of the great features brought by S/4HANA is HANA Live. With the help of ready to use hundreds of calculation and analitic views, real time multi dimensional operational reporting is available by using any presentation tool, like Lumira.
So with this document, I would like to share how to group related measures. In analytic views or calculation views, if you are using multiple measures and if you want to organize them, for example, to segregate the planned measures with the actual measures, then you can create a folder and group all related measures within this folder.
First of all you need to connect to your HANA db with valid and authorized user, and Hana Live add-on should be installed. I have assumed that you have enough expertise about modelling in HANA Studio. Once you have managed to acces HANA Live with HANA Studio you will see this screen:
You can see the content under HBA->ecc->Calculation Views
After expanding Calculation Views, all available content will be visible and subject to modify, browse , etc… In my document I want to use AccountingDocumentJournalQuery which is the main query for real time transactional financial postings. Because of being main hub, there are many measures.
So organizing them into folders will help users.
Just double click on the query name and get the details, as it is shown on the screen shot above,click the folder icon and get the folders window with measures.
Simply create required folders and by drag and drop, organize your measures.
So simple and so useful.
Hope you like,
