SAP S/4HANA Extensibility – Custom CDS Views in SAP S/4HANA Cloud and differences with SAP S/4HANA (OP)

BLOG UPDATES IN PROGRESS!!

 

Last reviewed for Updates: January 17 2019

This blog is applicable for SAP S/4HANA Cloud 1705, 1708, 1711 and 1802, 1805, 1808 and 1811

Note: The tile Custom CDS view is also available in SAP S/4HANA (OP) 1610 and 1709. However, there are noticeable differences between the features in OP vs Cloud. Some of the differences are like –

  1. The naming convention of custom CDS view in SAP S/4HANA Cloud starts with ‘YY1_’, whereas, in the SAP S/4HANA (OP), it starts with ‘ZZ1_
  2. There is no option for OData checkbox available in SAP S/4HANA (OP)
  3. For Analytical scenario, SAP S/4HANA (OP) only provides the option of ‘Cube’, whereas, SAP S/4HANA Cloud provides two options – Dimension and Cube
  4. There is no option to add ‘Filters’ in SAP S/4HANA (OP), whereas, it is available in SAP S/4HANA Cloud

Custom CDS views is an important part of key user extensibility in SAP S/4HANA Cloud and then consuming them via a side-by-side Fiori application in SAP Cloud Platform. Recently my 5 video series tutorial was published in SAP HANA Academy on this topic. You can access these from the links –

      Hi Rohit,

      We followed all your CDS views related videos and it is very helpful. We have created the communication arrangements in SCP and we are not able to expose the CDS view in S/4 HANA cloud under custom tiles. Can you please guide us on the steps ? your help on this would be really helpful.

       

      Regards,

      Mahesh

      Hi, Shanthi Bhaskar,

      You can create custom CDS views in S4H as well, however, the communication arrangement is not available in S4H.

      However, you can still enable the flag OData when creating a custom CDS in S4H. This way you can access it from outside of S4H.

      For any further help, please use the following tags as this will help the community as well.

      Hi, sathya eathakota,

      I_ADDRESS is an unreleased view, so you will not be able to use it. Please search from some other view in the View Browser app that matches your requirement closely.

      Regards

      Hi Rohit,

      I'm connected to a S/4HANA Cloud 2011 system, and it seems this approach became deprecated. I'm struggling to create a CDS View based on I_LiquidityPositionCube.

      How can I apply the same approach in the new UI/process?

      Regards, Chris
