Add a Compound characteristic for eg: Product ID of CODPRODUCT, Product Master Data Data source in a Cloud DataSource. When you click save throws the error message: 'Element Product ID: Number of compounded characteristics does not match'
Reproducing the Issue
- Go to the Business Analytics work center.
- Go to the Design Data sources.
- Click New.
- Select Cloud Data source.
- Add CODPRODUCT as Referencing Data source.
- Add Product ID for Referencing Data source Key field.
- Click Save.
The following error message is shown Element Product ID: Number of compounded characteristics does not match.
Some data source fields are compounded, i.e. they are linked to other characteristics. Such compounded fields are not supported in Cloud Data Sources.
You would need to use another Characteristics which contains the same information which has no compounding.
eg: Unique Product ID (PROD_EXTERNAL_ID) can be used instead of the compounding Charactersitic Product ID.
