Cloud Foundry HANA Trial Account Setup for Creating HDI Custom Views in SAP Web IDE
Disclaimer: The information is not up to date.
With SAP Marketing Cloud, you are able to import your own SAP HANA Views by using the SAP Fiori App “Add Custom Views”. This blog post tells you the steps you need to carry out to set up the SAP Web IDE for building HDI Calculation Views.
There is information that is now showing up in “Add Custom Views” that SAP HANA database version 2.0 will be used in the Add Custom Views application. Due to this change, the SAP HANA Studio will no longer be supported for modelling Custom Views. After the transition, only Analytical Models from SAP HANA Development Infrastructure (HDI) will be supported for import. For modelling you can, for example, use SAP HANA express edition that offers an SAP Web IDE. For more information, see Choose SAP HANA View .
