ODI SVN: "Version Compare Results" Finds Differences for Logical Schema Objects

(Doc ID 2312806.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 10, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Data Integrator - Version 12.1.2.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

In a branch Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) repository created from full tag of trunk, after populating the branch repository from Apache Subversion (SVN) and then then selecting "Compare with Last Version", the "Version Compare Results" dialog incorrectly shows differences in Topology highlighting logical schema objects.  The same may occur for other types of objects, ie "folders" or "mappings".

Example reproduction:

  1. Login to "trunk" type repository, create a full tag.

    Select ODI Studio menu Team > VCS Actions > Create Full Tag...
         
  2. Create "branch" in SVN.

    Select ODI Studio menu Team > VCS Actions > Create Branch from Tag...
               
  3. Login to new empty work repository, associate with SVN and configure it as the branch from previous steps.

    Select:
         ODI Studio menu Team > Switch Versioning Application
         ODI Studio menu Team > Settings > Edit Connection
         ODI Studio menu Team > Settings > Configure...
        
  4. Import all objects from SVN.

    Select ODI Studio menu Team > VCS Actions > Populate ODI Repository from VCS
                   
  5. Once the import is done, go to the "Topology" tab and right-click on a "Technology", ie "File"

    Select Version - Version History

    Select the "Compare Versions" icon in the "Version Search Criteria"
         
  6. Observe that the "Version Compare Results" dialog incorrectly shows items listed. The differences shown are for logical schema objects.
