VALID_FROM and VALID_TO

*Note: Use of time dependent hierarchies using a from-to hierarchy interval query is initially

targeted for SAP Applications accessing SAP HANA hierarchy views directly via SQL and will

only be fully enabled for customer use, once hierarchy-SQL expression are documented for

external use in the SAP HANA SQL documentation.Result example from a respective hierarchy view query

From/To parameters

enable return of a

hierarchy tree including

changes at different point

in times.

From/To parameters also

require to be set as data

filters of the calculation

view data source itself.

aggregations as well as analytic privileges.

Usage scenario and enablement

– Shared hierarchies from Dimension-type and StarJoin-type

Calculation Views.

– SQL use of hierarchies needs to be activated in the view

properties (for all shared hierarchies). Once activated

custom node-column name and hierarchy-expression

parameter* can be given custom name

*Note: Use of hierarchy expression will be fully enabled, once hierarchy-

expression are documented in the SAP HANA SQL documentation.

subtree. All the descendants of the node are selected.

–Note: the Revenue and Cost column contain the hierarchical

aggregated values, i.e. the Revenue for MAJESTIX is the sum of

the revenue of all its.

The calculated column Margin (percentage) is calculated correctly

after the aggregation on each hierarchy level.

Filtering on a hierarchy node value

– The node column can be used for filtering

Analytic Privileges Editor – SQL-based Analytic Privileges

Create SQL-based Analytic Privileges

In addition to the existing approach of creating

classical analytic privileges, users can now use SQL

based analytic privileges as design-time objects, which

provides the flexibility to create analytic privileges

within the familiar SQL environment.

– Restrict by Attributes

– Restrict by SQL expression

– Restrict dynamically

with by Procedure

Advantages of SQL-based analytic privileges

include simpler way of implementing more

complex filtering rules.
