OBIA: In BIA 11g RPD The Aging Bucket Dimension Does Not Display Results With All Facts (Doc ID 2120202.1)

Last updated on JUNE 06, 2017

Applies to:

Business Intelligence Applications Consumer - Version 11.1.1.8.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

In Oracle Business Intelligence Applications (BIA) 11.1.1.8.1 the Out Of The Box (OOTB) RPD content for Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (BIEE) Analytics, in the Financials AR Overview & Financials AP Overview subject areas the Aging Bucket table is visible.  However, some facts are blank when attribute column(s) from Aging Bucket are used. 

Case #1:
A custom report including attribute columns from the Aging Bucket table and measure columns from the Facts - AR/AP Invoice Aging table, then the measure columns are populated / return data.

Case #2:
A custom report including attribute columns from the Aging Bucket table and measure columns from the Facts - AR/AP Transactions or Payment Performance table, then the measure columns are *not* populated / are NULL or blank or empty.

The reason for the NULL or blank or empty columns in Case #2 is understood from an BIEE perspective as there is no join in the RPD between the Dimension and Fact tables.
From a BIA OOTB product design perspective is this expected behavior?
