How to find out InfoArea for particular BW object type – in BW/4 systems?

This blog post is continuation of my earlier blog - How to find out InfoArea for particular BW object type. That blog was focused on classic BW running on anyDB. In advent of BW/4 the tables for the BW objects have changed a little so I’m refurnishing the old blog post in here.

You might want to look at the RVI* views as well

Hi Candas,

Would you mind to elaborate in more detail on what do you mean by RVI* views?

cheers

This link mentions about S4 but I can see those views in BWonHana
https://www.trailsap.com/sap-s4-hana-tables/list/?index=rvi

I came across those a long time ago, I can't remember if I ever found why this was created by SAP.

But it's an easy way to find all SAP BW objects related information.

These RVI* tables seems to be present in S/4 system. However my blog post is about BW/4. I'm not even really sure if they are real S/4 tables and what's their purpose though.

Candas said...

As I said it's there in BWonHana/7.5 as well, that's why I mentioned it.
Nevermind.

Hi Candas,

I'm sorry I missed that part... Yes the RVI* DDIC objects are present in BW75 on HANA. They are all DDL SQL View on top of classic BW tables - RS* namespace. Seems they are part of Reusable CDS Views used in BW. Not sure why these objects are not present in BW/4HANA systems.

Thanks for pointing to these objects!
cheers
