In Oracle Financial Services Profitability Analytics (PFTBI) 5.6, when you try to re-save a Cube like PFTACPRF (Account level profitability) or PFTACPNP (Account Level Profitability with Next Repricing Month) as described in the PFTBI User Guide, the following error appears on the screen:

[4520] Metadata could not be parsed. Please check SQL syntax

When you check the SMSService.log in $FIC_APP_HOME/common/FICServer/logs, the following error exists:

java.sql.SQLSyntaxErrorException: ORA-00904: "FCT_COMMON_ACCOUNT_SUMMARY"."N_INSTRUMENT_TYPE": invalid identifier

The query listed above the error in the log does contain N_INSTRUMENT_TYPE.  However, in the Data Model, N_INSTRUMENT_TYPE was supposed to be removed from FCT_COMMON_ACCOUNT_SUMMARY when you installed Patch 13499204.  So, you do not expect the Cubes to use N_INSTRUMENT_TYPE.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Install Patch 13499204
  2. Go Unified Metadata Manager
  3. Go to Business Metadata Management > Cubes
  4. Click on Search
  5. Select PFTACPRF (Account level profitability)
  6. In Long Description, enter a space and then delete it
  7. Click on Save

The error appears.
