hierarchy attribute

Component of the tabular results set of a built-in database hierarchy function that contains hierarchy-specific information for each row. When a hierarchy is accessed in ABAP SQL, the hierarchy attributes can be included in the results set as hierarchy columns of hierarchy nodes. The hierarchy attributes for the definitions of elements of the CDS hierarchy can be used in the definition of a CDS hierarchy.
