SAP BW/4 HANA cockpit is a Web-based interface used for administration of a BW/4HANA system. In older versions of BW, Hierarchy is created using the tcode ‘RSH1’. In BW/4HANA, the hierarchy can be created using the web cockpit. In this blog, we are going to see in detail about InfoObject hierarchy creation and maintenance.

The options available for the hierarchy in the cockpit are:

The characteristic node as a neighbour creates nodes in the same level while the characteristic node as a child creates a node as a child for the existing node. The number of times we use this depends on the hierarchy tree and it helps to create a perfect hierarchy manually.
