Access Views

Extracting data from IFS Cloud to the Data Warehouse in SQL Server is done by using Access Views. These views represent the read interface in IFS Cloud, acting as a view layer on top of the Information Source related views.

Note: Access Views are not available by default. It is necessary to generate these views via the IFS Aurena client.
