Obiee repository questions and answers

  1. 1. OBIEE FANSwww.obieefans.comOBIEE Repository Questions (no answers)ByOBIEE FANSwww.obieefans.com• If we change a table in DM (database) how do we refresh? If any Table is changed how do werefresh that change in Repository ? In other words If an extra column is added to table how dowe refesh in repository?• What is Online /off line means? ( I read in Manual and still not clear ..I came from BObackground and in BO it gives diff meaning – Online means connected to security Repositoryand Offline means no connection to Repository)• Why it is not advised to join with foreign keys in Fact tables to primary keys in Logical tablesin Business model and mapping layer?• Why do we need dimensions when it is not visible in Presentation layer? ( I know it is works todefine Hierarchies .Any Example ?)• How do we put a condition on logical table in Business model Layer (self join ex : country =‘US’ )• How do we define Row Level Security in OBIEE?• For Every repository we have to define groups /users? Is there anyway we can defineusers/Groups once(in cetralized way but not with LDAP) use them in every repository?• ST_DIM.ST_CDE = substr (RWA_FACT.BLDG_ID, 1, 2) Can we add this kind of joinsbetween tables in Business Model Layer? OBIEE is not allowing, is there any reason?• Can we create Filter Objects in Repository? (Ex: my filter Name: Prior 10 Years; condition willbe TimeTable.FY_YEAR > 1996)? If so where and how do I create them?• If I have a summary table and a detail table and let’s say Summary will give QTR revenues andDetail table will give Monthly Revenue. Can we create only One object and say Revenue and isdepends on the query can it decide to go to Summary table or Detailed Table to get theappropriate revenue? ( in BO we have Aggregate Navigation )ANSWERS Questions1.) How do we add a column to the report2.) How do we apply a Rank to a report, for Ex : year ,customer ,amount .. If we run a report for5 years ,I need top 10 customers per year to total 50 rows should be there in a report.Dashboards QuestionsHow do we Migrate Dashboards from One Env ( DEV) to Another ENV (QA or PROD)How do we Pass a YEAR Parameter in a drill report (a report which shows QTRs)How to put a button to download a dashboard to ExcelHow do we create an alerts (scrolling Texts)How do we setup to send an elerts to email or Cell PhsOBIEE FANSwww.obieefans.com
  2. 2. OBIEE FANSwww.obieefans.comHow do we map a dashboard to map (US map and let users click CA )How do we put sorts on a table (with arrows) on a dashboard sectionsQuestions and Answers1. If we change the Table in the database, I think we need to manually refresh that table in theRepository. That is if we add any new column need to import that column from that table intoRepository.2. Online: If we want to reflect the changes in the Repository to Presentation Services immidiatelywithout restarting the services. Reload Server Metadata will Reflect the changes.Offline: Working on RPD normally.3. We can restrict the data from a logical table in a BM by putting a condition in the WHERE clauseof that Table Mapping.4. I dont think we can create a Filter objects in Repository. Rather we can use Repository variables.5. Use of CASE expression can populate the column data dynamically.Answers:1. Just click on the column in the Presentation Catalog it will automatically add that column to theCriteria.2. Go to the Column Formula and click Functions you can find various built-in Functions. In that youcan find RANK.Dash Board:OBIEE FANSwww.obieefans.com
  3. 3. OBIEE FANSwww.obieefans.com1. You can migrate the Dash Boards from one system to another. Go to the following path:{BI Install Dir}:BIDatawebcatalogpaintshared[Dash Boards]In this path you can find the Dash Board details those you can find on Presentation Services.2. YEAR Parameter!!!!! You can put a filter for YEAR to the Request as you are going to get Drill bydefault.3. There is a default button PRINT on the dash board. You can use this to download your dashboard to PDF, HTML, EXCEL.... If you want that option to individual Requests, Go to Edit DashBoard-->Properties Tab of Request--> Report View-->Select the Required Options and Save.4. It is not an alert. Implement the Ticker View to get the Scrolling Text of your Request.5. Use of BI Delivers that is iBots fulfills your criteria.6. Just click that Arrows while creating the Request that is in the Criteria Tab of the Column.Answers stated in my point of view. I would be very happy if anyone corrects me.• Why do we need dimensions when it is not visible in Presentation layer? ( I know it is works to defineHierarchies .Any Example ?)Ans : Defining the Hierachy levels are very usefull for creation of level based measure .Each logical table source of a fact logical table needs to have an aggregation content defined. Theaggregation content rule defines at what level of granularity the data is stored in this fact table. For eachdimension that relates to this fact logical table, define the level of granularity, ensuring that everyrelated dimension is defined• How do we define Row Level Security in OBIEE?Ans : Row level Security is nothing but we are providing Datalevel Security. This we can do in 2 types .If the user is available in Repository ..then we can restrict that in the mange ->Security->User ->OBIEE FANSwww.obieefans.com
  4. 4. OBIEE FANSwww.obieefans.comPermissons -> Filter ->Add-> in this we can use with Expression Builder and write the Query …If the user are avilabel in some DB table …then in this case we can use the session variables and give thepermissions by using session variables .OBIEE FANSwww.obieefans.comOBIEE FANSwww.obieefans.com
