Adding Data to the Database Entities on BAS for CAPM Full Stack UI5 Development
Welcome to the Fourth Episode of the Series: SAP CAPM Full Stack UI5 Application with CRUD Operations. Till now we have created Development Space in BAS, set up a project structure for development, created entities and exposed the same as Odata services. In this episode, we will be inserting the Data in the created database entity for the project and expose the same.
Assumption(OR Must Have to Start):
- You have followed our previous episode where we create entities and exposed the same.
Your project structure should look like the below if you carefully followed all our previous episodes.
Step 1: Creating Data
So let’s create a folder in db folder. Right-click on db folder and select New Folder.
Name your folder as data.
Now create a new file in the created data folder.
Name your file as cap_tutorial-SalesOrders.csv. Here cap_tutorial is the namespace – SalesOrders is our entity. It’s a nomenclature that needs to be followed for mapping the data.
Now, it’s time to create actual data. So, in CAPM we use .csv files to create local data. You can easily create them in Excel or Libre or even in Notepad. For now, you can copy-paste it from below.
customerName,PoNumber,customerNumber,orderDate,soNumber,inquiryNumber,totalOrderItems Adidas,2000000001,3000000001,2021-06-15T19:34:03Z,500009101,30061111,2 Adidas,2000000002,3000000002,2021-06-15T19:34:03Z,500009102,30061111,3 Rebok,2000000003,3000000003,2021-06-15T19:34:03Z,500009103,30061114,2 Adidas,2000000004,3000000004,2021-06-15T19:34:03Z,500009104,30061111,1 Rebok,2000000005,3000000005,2021-06-15T19:34:03Z,500009105,30061113,2 Puma,2000000006,3000000006,021-08-15T15:00:03Z,500009106,30061112,3 Puma,2000000007,3000000007,2021-08-15T15:00:03Z,500009107,30061112,1 Adidas,2000000008,3000000008,2021-08-15T15:00:03Z,500009108,30061115,2
Your final Project Structure should look something like this :
Step 2: Exposing the Data
We will have to do a cds build.
Now let’s do cds watch, this time when we navigate to the Entity SalesOrders. We will be able to see the added data.
Now you can click on Fiori preview.
You will see the below screen, with No Data. No need to worry, just click on Setting Icon.
Choose all the columns for which you want to see the data and click OK.
We can see the Data is populated now in our fiori preview.
