In order to expose a Custom CDS View as Cube please notice the following the primary data source cannot be a Dimension.


You are using a primery data source that is a Dimension.

It is not possible to create an Analytical Cube with a primary data source that is a Dimension, refer to SAP note 2657021.

This was possible in the past but currently it is only permitied touse it As Dimension.

If you try to change the already created View to a Dimension it will fail because it has dependencies built on top of it.

To fix this you have either to delete the dependent objects, and then change it  As Dimension, or create a new copy of the Custom CDS View stack.
