Connecting to predefine SAP HANA CDS views

Hello, I am connectin from Power BI to HANA database to predefine CDS views like this:

 

Here are I am calling predefine CDS view for storage location list. This view has annotation @ClientHandling.algorithm #SESSION_VARIABLE. So it expected client to be specified for connection session. For all such a CDS views i get empty table in Power BI, the same problem if calling them from SQL server. (My own views working perfectly). Yes, I can write my one CDS views, but there are so many nice views already predefine in HANA database, so I really would be happy to find way to use them.

 

Thank you for any advice.

Re: Connecting to predefine SAP HANA CDS views

@tomaskutac,

Currently, it is not possible to directly import data from CDS view using the built-in SAP HANA connector, regarding to this issue, you can sumit a feature request in Power BI ideas forum: https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200.

However, CDS Views can be easily exposed as oData Service(API) which can then be utilized to fetch data out from SAP S/4HANA Cloud. 
You can use OData feed connector in Power BI Desktop to connect to import data from CDS view.

There are some blogs for your reference:
