OBIEE 11g: Is There A Reporting mechanism Which Details Where Each Metadata Object Is Used On Reports, Conditions, Prompts, Agents, etc. (Doc ID 1984451.1)

Last updated on MARCH 22, 2015

Applies to:

Business Intelligence Server Enterprise Edition - Version 11.1.1.7.140527 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

We would like to understand OBIEE capabilities to support reporting which shows where each metadata object is used on reports, conditions, agents, etc.  Our use case is as follows:
1) We leverage Noetix Global Views and as such makes modifications to views, in terms of column adds, join conditions, etc.
2) When such changes are made, we would like to evaluate the impact to reports in OBIEE catalog which may use some of the changed objects.
3) Noetix is not the appropriate layer to do this in as it doesn't have 'visiblity' to web catalog reports.
