OBIEE 11g Cross Subject area Reporting with ENABLE_DIMENSIONALITY (Doc ID 1908906.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 27, 2017

Applies to:

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

Symptoms

To build cross subject area queries that use dimensions not common across two subject areas, a parameter ENABLE_DIMENSIONALITY=1 was introduced as a globally session variable in order to enable cross-fact reports.

A white paper was published attached to the Knowledge Doc Id 1567672.1 for the Oracle Transactional BI (OTBI) product that describes this feature.

However after implementing ENABLE_DIMENSIONALITY=1 on a global level, the standard functionality using level based measures no longer works on analysis tables and dashboards. The level based measure is now set to Grand Total and no error message is reported.
