    OBIEE ENABLE_DIMENSIONALITY variable

    SPowell42

      I see release notes for 11.1.1.7.16 and 11.1.1.9 that mention an "ENABLE_DIMENSIONALITY" variable, which when set to 1 seems to make queries across facts with non-conformed dimensions to map to "total" levels of the non-conformed dimensions without having to set lots of level metrics in the RPD. In general I like this option, but two quick questions:

       

      1. Other than the checkbox on the advanced tab in analyses editor, is there another way to turn this on (possibly as a default)? I like to keep end users away from the advanced tab

      2. I can't find any documentation on exactly what setting ENABLE_DIMENSIONALITY = 1 does...other than the 1 sentence on the screen. Are there more technical details about this somewhere?

       

      Thanks,

      Scott
