Summary

Sometimes requirements arises to select data from the Maintenance View. As all of you know that functions like SELECT cannot be used with maintenance view. So this could be achieved by using the function module VIEW_GET_DATA. The function has additional parameters related to subset selection ( Read Cluster View to know about subset ), authorization checks, selection conditions etc.
