HDI: returning multiple deployment errors
Working with SAP HANA Cloud and HDI the tooling stopped at the first error and you had to fix them in the sequence the errors where thrown. All this one by one. This can lead to a lot of cycles that are time consuming and do not support the workflow one had in mind.
With SAP HANA Cloud March 2022 the HDI can now return the first error it can detect per each “dependency branch”.
In this schematic tree we would see 3 errors caused in various depths in the tree.
The HDI works through the individual branches until finished or with error message.
How can you activate this behaviour?
Today do get this behaviour by default in the Business Application Studio environment. We are setting the parameter to false and you can not even overwrite this anymore!
As you can see in the sample the errors are reflected in Business Application Studio (BAS) with 2 highlighted HDBTABLE definitions.
The HDI parameter “stop on error” is now set by default to false and can not be overwritten in BAS. It allows the developer to reduce the cycle times with HDI and allow to find faster and easier typos or other errors within the design time objects.
