ODI does not Check SQL Code when Validating Filter Expressions

(Doc ID 2357965.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 16, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Data Integrator - Version 12.2.1.2.6 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

An Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) 12c Mapping with a sub-query Filter has a SQL code error in the sub-query Filter condition - i.e. there is an additional close parenthesis which has no corresponding open parenthesis.

Even though this error exists, the Mapping validation completes successfully.

ODI documentation does recommend using Mapping validation to check the SQL code:

To define the mapping of a target attribute:

4. Optionally, after modifying an expression or condition, consider validating your mapping to check for errors in your SQL code.
Click the green check mark icon at the top of the logical diagram. Validation errors, if any, will be displayed in a panel.

In current case, the malformed SQL command is not detected during the Mapping validation.
