In a BI Report using CSA, when fields from a Child Object are selected along with fields from Parent Object, the result set is reduced.

Customer expects All the results from the Parent Object to show irrespective of whether there are records (corresponding to the Parent) in the Child Object or not.

1. Create a CSA (with Opportunity as the Parent Object)
2. Add multiple child objects to the CSA
3. Publish the CSA and build a BI Report using the new CSA
4. In BI Report, select attributes from the Parent Object
Observe the number of records returned in the result
5. Modify the Report and add attributes from the Child Object
Observe that the number of records returned in the result gets reduced if there are no corresponding child records for any parent record.

The issue has the following business impact:
Due to this issue, customer is unable to use the CSA accurately
