OBIEE 11g/12c : How to Disable the Use of the DISTINCT clause in the Physical Query of any OBIEE report (Doc ID 1570634.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 11, 2017

Applies to:

Business Intelligence Server Enterprise Edition - Version 11.1.1.7.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

As mentioned in <Note 1210533.1> , Disabling a DISTINCT_SUPPORTED in DB Features in RPD Physical layer merely just tells OBIS that the feature is not supported in the backend source, so it does not construct the SQL to pass it along. Instead, the OBIS engine does the work. Regarding the Distinct behavior , this is 'as expected' behavior for the OBIS engine.

Is it possible to exclude the 'Distinct' clause from physical query of the reports designed in OBIEE 11g/12c ?
