Creating A Data Visualization Calculation In Oracle Analytics Assigns The Type As 'Attribute' Instead of Expected Measure Type (Doc ID 2736464.1)

You have created a simple calculation with only a number as an expression (such as 1.0). Once saved, you observe the 'Type' is set to attribute when a type of measure is expected.
Casting as a numeric also does not change the type assigned.

This may be the case in Oracle Analytics Cloud (OAC) or Oracle Analytics Server (OAS)
