OBIEE 12C : Information Missing From The Repository Documentation Utility In The BI Administration Tool

(Doc ID 2382814.1)

Last updated on JULY 09, 2018

Applies to:

Business Intelligence Server Enterprise Edition - Version 12.2.1.3.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

The "Repository Documentation" utility in the Oracle BI administration Tool relates each single element from the presentation layer with elements from the business model layer and the physical layer. However, this information is incomplete. For example, Logical table in the business model layer, whose "Sources" properties refers to a table in the physical layer. But in the "Properties" dialog for this source ("Content" tab), there is also a "WHERE clause" defined - which does not appear in the file generated by the "Repository Documentation" utility.

Another example is a logical column from a logical table in the business model layer, which uses an aggregation ("SUM") on the source column from the physical layer. This aggregation rule does not appear in the documentation file, either.
