Query rewrite in Oracle 12c

Rudi Member Posts: 96 Blue Ribbon

We have an issue regarding Oracle query rewrite.

All the queries are generated by OBIEE 12c which heavily uses WITH Clauses  a.k.a Subquery Factoring.

However, we see that even if we create MV which are full sql text match,the query rewrite doesn't happen.

We are using dbms_mview.explain_rewrite,in order to understand the root cause, but we get nowhere.

Any ideas/experience?

    Please can you post a simplified example of a query, and the materialized view you are creating?

    I am also having the same issue.  I tried having the definition of the materialized view be exactly what the BI query was and that did not work.  The Explain Rewrite performance in the Grid Control returns this as to why it is not using the mv:

    QSM-01150: query did not rewrite

    QSM-01091: cost based optimizer found query rewrite is more expensive

    If I run the query outside of BI and put in a hint to use the mv, the results return very fast so I do not understand why the optimizer thinks its less costly to not use the mv.

    The BI query is this:

                            SUM(T267358.LABOR_HOURS)          AS c2 ,
