ODI 12c Variable Is Missing "Select Query" Value of "Refreshing" Tab After Smart Import when Selecting "Create Copy" of a Marker Group (Doc ID 2809679.1)

Information in this document applies to any platform.


In Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) Studio, when using smart import including variables that already exist in the repository, and if selecting to "Create Copy" of a Marker Group that is included in the Smart Export file, the variables are overwritten with an empty "Refreshing" "Select Query".

Importing a second time brings back the expected "Select Query".
Importing a third time removes the "select query".
Import again, and the "select query" is imported.

To reproduce:

  1. Create a project
  2. Create a variable
  3. Add "Select Query" under "Refreshing" tab:   
  4. Save
  5. Smart export the project
  6. Smart import the project.
  7. In the "Smart Import - Step 2 of 3" window, expand "Designer"
    Projects -> Project name -> Markers
    For any of the Marker Group, select Action "Create Copy" instead of the default "Overwrite"
  8. Select "Next" and  "Finish"
  9. Examine the variable
    => notice that the "Select Query" under "Refreshing" tab is empty
  10. Repeat step 6 - 8
    => notice that the "Select Query" under "Refreshing" tab has the correct value
  11. Repeat step 6 - 8
    => notice that the "Select Query" under "Refreshing" tab is empty again
