SAP HANA calculation view version rollback
This blog post presents a step-by-step procedure to rollback an existing calculation view to a previous version.
The described procedure may be used to perform a critical rollback in case a newer version makes other calculation views in a productive landscape inactive. As an example, a calculation view is enhanced in Dev system and promoted to productive system, where it causes a dependent calculation view to become inactive for lack of certain fields or a change in data type of an output field. And the calculation view that becomes inactive is critical to daily operations of an enterprise. In such an instance, roll back of the enhanced calculation view to a previous version presents a quick fix while a long-term solution is developed and deployed.
Note: this procedure is not a substitute for regular development, testing a deployment of calculation views in productive environments.
