Two features are available in SAP Business Application Studio to analyze modeling content within a project. These are:
They work in a symmetrical way. For any calculation view you choose, you can show the dependencies with other modeling content.
To use these features, right-click a calculation view file in the Explorer view, and choose Show Data Lineage or Open Impact Analysis.
Data lineage shows all the calculation views and source tables on which a given calculation view depends.
The purpose of impact analysis is to show all the chain of calculation views that depend on a given calculation view.
Lineage and Impact Analysis Across HDI Containers
From QRC 3/2022, SAP HANA Cloud is able to perform a lineage and an impact analysis not only within a given HDI container, but also towards another HDI container.
This feature is useful, when calculation views from a container are consumed by calculation views from another one, to check as exhaustively as possible how a change you make to a calculation view might impact another HDI container. You can also, similarly, track all the dependencies of a calculation view, including the ones located in an external container.
The privileges of the _RT user (the technical user interacting on your behalf with the HDI container) determine which objects are visible outside of the HDI container.
So, if the _RT user has system privilege
CATALOG READ, all objects are visible. Otherwise, only the objects for which the _RT user has an object privilege, such as
SELECT, are visible.
