You create an attribute view to represent the master data tables (like Product, Employee, Business Partner, Customer).

    • Attributes of the master data can be modeled using attribute views.
    • In attribute views you define joins between tables and select a subset or all of the table’s columns and rows.
    • Attributes view are further used in Analytic- and Calculation Views.

Example: An attribute view “FLIGHT” can show together Airline Code, Airline Connection Number and flight Date into one Object. This attribute view can be used in analytic and calculation views where entities are relevant.

Generally attribute views represent master data. But, however technically there is no restriction and it’s possible to make attribute views on transaction data.

    • Description Mapping & Text-Join Lookup master data tables e.g. used for handling of multi-language master data

    • Hierarchies (Level, Parent-Child)
