2804281 - Performance Issue editing a Custom CDS View


When editing a Custom CDS View, after clicking the Edit button, it can take a significant period of time, at least 1 minute and 30 seconds, before the Custom CDS View is available to be editted


SAP S/4HANA Cloud 1905 Custom CDS Views app


When the Datasources used in a Custom CDS View have a large number of Available Fields and Associations, the parsing of all of the fields and associations required when making a Custom CDS View available to edit takes a considerable period of time


  • SAP Product Development is aware of this issue and is working to redesign the Custom CDS Views app to change how and when the parsing of available fields and associations is done and to improve the overall performance of the app
  • There is currently no known timeframe for when this redesign will be complete and released
  • A possible workaround to address a portion of the performance issue is:
    1. Create a new Custom CDS View, CDS1, which includes only the fields which you need - Do NOT select all fields
    2. Create a new Custom CDS View, CDS2, using CDS1 as the datasource - if needed, add associations to CDS2
    3. Work with CDS2
