OBIEE: Setting Fact to Total Level Of Hierarchy No Longer Forces Outer Join (Doc ID 1601703.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 06, 2015

Applies to:

Business Intelligence Server Enterprise Edition - Version 11.1.1.7.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Environment was upgraded from 11.1.1.5.5 to 11.1.1.7.1.

Inner joins are used throughout the repository for performance purposes; however, occasionally there is a need to force an outer join between multi-factual analyses. Since the 10g environment, this was done by setting a fact to the total level of an unconformed dimensional hierarchy.

OBIEE is writing the two different queries for 11.1.1.5.5 and 11.1.1.7.1.

A reasonable solution would be to either maintain the full outer join, or be able to force which select statement is used as the anchor. Regardless of syntax selected (SQL Server 2000, 2005, or 2008), OBIEE writes the same query logically.
