2994914 - Fiori Elements List Report (CDS View) action to delete records in backend does not refresh List Report


  • The developer/designer have created a CDS view with annotations
    • Created a behavior definition and implementation


      Special Note: Most of the code is spared or removed from this article (only highlighting design goal or pseudo code)

      Behavior definition:


      action activate result [1] $self;

      action reject result [1] $self;

      Behavior Implementation:

      METHOD reject.

           LOOP AT roots_to_reject INTO DATA(ls_reject).

             READ TABLE lcl_buffer=>mt_buffer WITH KEY distributor = ls_reject-distributor
      *********************************** HANDLE REJECTS

      lt_data = VALUE #(  FOR row IN lcl_buffer=>mt_buffer WHERE  ( flag = 'R' ) (  row-data ) ).

          IF lt_data IS NOT INITIAL.

            LOOP AT lt_data into ls_data.

               get time stamp field lv_timestamp.

      *All in progress records for this distributor and other data on table X are marked as rejected
      * The record on the table X is deleted

      * Delete Buffer Record
              DELETE TABLE lcl_buffer=>mt_buffer WITH TABLE KEY distributor = ls_data-distributor

    • Created a Fiori Elements List report for the CDS view using the template
    • Added a custom action that deletes a record from the backend table
    • The action works fine and the record gets deleted 
  • The problem is that when the designed application returns to the List Report (i.e. after the delete action)  the deleted record still appear in the list report output
  • The user has to press the Go button for the List Report to be refreshed and the deleted record to disappear from the output
  • Everything works 100% and the record is deleted from the database table when the user chooses the reject option
  • FioriList_template2.png

  • When the user returns to the list report the record still appears in the output, but only the key fields have values (It did not fully disappear)

  • The user has to press the Go (search) button for the list to be refreshed and the record to disappear from the list
