Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a custom CDS View based on I_UNITOFMEASURE 
  2. Make sure field UnitOfMeasure_E is selected
  3. Publish the custom CDS view as an external API
  4. Test this API, the field is not showing in metadata


@Consumption.hidden: true

Standard data source I_UNITOFMEASURE has this property of consumption.hidden:true for that specific field.

So all the datasources referenced the same field will have this property.


Modify the Field Properties and make sure the Hidden property is selected to 'False'.
