Input types for HANA modelling views

Input types for HANA modelling views

You can use the following input types when you read data from HANA modelling views:
  • Variables. A variable is a filter. A variable is associated with a field, for example, company name, of the view.
    Provide the variable value in the field that you specified in SAP.
    The following image shows the variable
    VAR_01
    associated with
    COMPANY
    and
    PO_CATEGORY
    fields:
    The image shows the variable VAR_01 associated with fields COMPANY and PO_CATEGORY.
  • Parameters. An input parameter is a placeholder to the query. You can use parameters to insert values for analytical views and calculation views. The data type for an input parameter in
    Data Integration
    is
    char
    . Specify the data for input parameters in the format that you defined in SAP.
    When you create a mapping and use input parameters, do not connect the input parameters in the source to the output fields. Otherwise, the mapping fails. For more information, see Input parameter types.
