OBIEE 11G Creating Logical Dimensions with Level-Based Hierarchies

In this set of steps you add logical dimension hierarchies to the business model. A logical dimension represents a hierarchical organization of logical columns belonging to a single logical dimension table. Logical dimensions can exist in the Business Model and Mapping layer and in the Presentation Layer. Adding logical dimensions to the Presentation layer exposes them to users, which enables users to create hierarchy-based queries. You implement four logical dimensions for ABC: Time, Product, Office, and Customer. Creating logical dimensions with hierarchies allows you to build level-based measures, define aggregation rules that vary by dimension, provide drill down on charts and tables in analyses and dashboards, and define the content of aggregate sources.To create logical dimensions with level-based hierarchies, you perform the following steps:
  • Open the Repository in Offline Mode
  • Create a Logical Dimension for Product
  • Create Logical Levels
  • Associate Logical Columns with Logical Levels
  • Set Logical Level Keys
  • Create a Logical Dimension for Time
  • Associate Time Logical Columns with Logical Levels
  • Create a Logical Dimension for Customer
  • Set Aggregation Content for Logical Table Sources
  • Test Your Work

Open the Repository in Offline Mode

1 . Return to the Administration Tool, which should still be open. If not, select Start > Programs > Oracle Business Intelligence > BI Administration.
2 . Select File > Open > Offline.
3 . Select BISAMPLE.rpd and click Open. Do not select any BISAMPLE repository with an extension, for example, BISAMPLE_BI0001.rpd. Recall that these are the repositories that have been loaded into Oracle BI Server memory.
4 . Enter BISAMPLE1 as the repository password and click OK to open the repository.
