2887450 - Model created based on this HANA view hierarchies label is not retrieved SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


The following behavior occurs in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC):

  • Model created based on this HANA view hierarchies label is not retrieved.
  • HANA_View : a hierarchy exists with a given name, with the label  and drill-down menu.
  • SAC_Model : the same hierarchy, but the description is not correct, instead should get the label defined in HANA.


  • SAP Analytics Cloud (Enterprise) 2020.02

Reproducing the Issue

  1. In SAP HANA views create hierarchies.
  2. Put labels for each hierarchies.
  3. In SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC) while creating a model based on this HANA view observe that they don't retrieve hierarchies label, instead have it based on the name.


Expected behavior by design.


  • In the modeling screen for remote models you can override the descriptions of the columns of HANA view.
  • If there is no custom description for a column the input field shows the current column description as grey text.
  • It is not possible to show or maintain hierarchy labels of HANA view for remote models.
