In SAP BW/4HANA, InfoObjects are similar to the SAP BW versions. There are four types of InfoObjects in SAP BW/4HANA such as:

  • Characteristic
  • Key figure
  • Unit
  • XXL

Characteristics: In SAP BW/4HANA, Characteristics can be defined depending on the five ABAP dictionary data types:

  • Character string (CHAR) - AlphaNumeric characters
  • Numerical text (NUMC) - Only Numbers
  • Signed numerical characteristics (SNUMC) - signed numbers and negative values
  • Date in format YYYYMMDD (DATS) - Date
  • Time in format HHMMSS (TIMS) – Time

General properties of characteristic InfoObjects:

  • Usable as InfoProvider
  • Authorization-relevant
  • Attribute only
  • High-cardinality
  • Case-sensitive
  • Master data
  • Texts
  • Hierarchy
