Symptom

  I_MaintOrderActualCostDataCube and  C_MaintOrdActualCostDataQ in the App 'View Browser' do not show field such as  CompanyCode Name ,  GLAccount Name , CostCenter Name

Environment

  • SAP Asset Management ( PM )
  • SAP S/4HANA, cloud edition

Cause

For the given CDS views, best practice modelling is not to have text fields.

Text fields are a consumption layer concern, i.e. to make information more accessible to the end user.

Adding text fields on a cube field would be bad design, as not every consumer of this view might need the text fields.

In fact, most of our consumption frameworks anyways can retrieve text on their own via the published foreign key relationships. To achieve this, ensure that you have also published the foreign key association of the desired dimension.
