Degenerate Dimension in OBIEE

A degenerate dimension (DD) acts as a dimension key in the fact table, however does not join to a corresponding dimension table because all its interesting attributes have already been placed in other analytic dimensions.

Sometimes people want to refer to degenerate dimensions as textual acts, however they're not facts since the fact table's primary key often consists of the DD combined with one or more additional dimension foreign keys.

Degenerate dimensions commonly occur when the fact table's grain is a single transaction.
