SAP HANA 2.0: Display Calculation Views in HDI-Containers

In SAP HANA 2.0, Database Views reside in so-called HDI-Containers. Power BI Desktop (PBIRS) shows empty Containers (database schemes) but not the Calculation VIews inside.
The old Calculation VIews from HANA 1.0 are visible.

So please extend the connector for SAP HANA (relational mode) to select the new Calculation Views from the HANA data dictionary as well as the old ones.

    This would be awesome. We are in the midst of a project with this exact requirement. I realise this is probably quite a new requirement, but this will definitely increase given SAP's direction and usage of HDI containers.

    We are losing corporate authors to Tableau because it connects to HANA calc views (in HDI) and Power BI does not!

    Other visualization vendors are supporting the HANA 2.0 database making the case to continue to use MS PowerBI harder
