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.
Support for HANA HDI Container views was added as part of the August release of Power BI Desktop: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-august-2019-feature-summary/#HDIcontainers
We recently learned that this feature will be avaiable only in the cloud version. We need it as well in the Report Server. Could you please give an update on this?

This is a requirement as we are conduction a POC with Power BI.

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.
It would be appreciated if SAP HANA 2.0 views could be viewed within Power BI
We are losing corporate authors to Tableau because it connects to HANA calc views (in HDI) and Power BI does not!
This gap is driving users to alternative solutions.
Other visualization vendors are supporting the HANA 2.0 database making the case to continue to use MS PowerBI harder
