Can someone please help me on this?

I have a scenario where I need to query the child business unit data views from child business unit.

When I'm trying to query on _open or _click data views it throws me an error saying that ( An error occurred while checking the query syntax. Errors: _Open is not a known data extension or system data view. You can only query existing data extensions or system data views. )

Any Suggestions on how to query the data views?

Thanks in advance.

You would need to open a support case to get the dataviews turned on for this account


System data views like _Open, _Sent, _Clicked are stored in the parent BU. To query this you add e.g. ENT._Open to your query. The system data view _Job is stored in child BU so you can query as usual here. Great article from Mateusz Dąbrowski on this. https://mateuszdabrowski.pl/docs/config/sfmc-config-system-data-views/
