Reading master data – Transformation Rule type for Open Hub

Within transformation in SAP BW there is a set of so called Rule Types. One of them is called Read Master Data. This rule type serves to read master data table of a characteristic from the source with a key and a value and contains the corresponding InfoObject as an attribute. The attribute of the IO is read and assigned to target InfoObject.

However, availability of this rule type depends on type of destination. In case the destination type is Open Hub the Read Master Data rule type is not available. Reason why it is like that is explained in SAP Note 1083266. It points to technical reason. Whatever it means the fact is that as long as the destination is the Open Hub it is not available.
