ODI - Adapter for Hyperion Essbase - Getting Started

Card Puncher Data Processing


  • installation of the sample essbase database
  • file (the sources for the samples are delimited flat files)

Knowledge Modules

Five Knowledge Modules (KMs):

  • RKM Hyperion Essbase—For reverse-engineering Essbase applications and creating data models to use as targets or sources in Oracle Data Integrator interfaces
  • IKM SQL To Hyperion Essbase (METADATA)—For loading metadata into Essbase applications
  • IKM SQL To Hyperion Essbase (DATA)—For loading data into Essbase applications
  • LKM Hyperion Essbase DATA To SQL—For extracting data from Essbase applications
  • LKM Hyperion Essbase METADATA To SQL—For extracting member lists from Essbase applications

Report statistics steps

In the Operator, on the Execution tab, the statistics on Insert, Update, Delete, and Errors are shown as zero for all Essbase loads and extracts because of an Oracle Data Integrator limitation for nonrelational targets and sources. To see the correct statistics on success and failed rows:

  • Expand the session that loads data into the Essbase application data or extracts data from the application.
  • Open Report Statistics.
  • Click the Execution tab.

A stack trace is displayed that shows the statistics.

org.apache.bsf.BSFException: exception from Jython:
Traceback (innermost last):
File "<string>", line 2, in ?
Essbase Metadata Writer Load Summary: 
     Number of rows successfully processed: 16
