[SAP HANA] How to bring in Field Description in addition to Technical Name?

6 - Meteoroid

When trying to connect to SAP Hana via the Input Tool, the technical names of the field shows up instead of the Field Description in any table we try to query. This has made it very hard for our developers to sift through our huge views and select the fields they need, as they are familiar with the Field Descriptions not the technical names.

 

In Tableau, the Field Descriptions show up not the technical names. Are there any workarounds people have found to show the Field Description instead of the technical names in an SAP Hana connection?
