OBIEE – Views

Oracle BI Enterprise Edition enables you to look at results of analyses in a meaningful way using its presentation capabilities. Different types of views can be added, such as graphs and pivot tables that allow drilling down to more detailed information and many more options like using filters, etc.
The results of the analysis is displayed using a table/Pivot table view and depends on the type of columns that the analysis contains −
  • Table view is used if the analysis contains only attribute columns/only measure columns or a combination of both.
  • Pivot table is the default view if the analysis contains at least one hierarchical column.
  • title view displays the name of the saved analysis.
  • You can edit or delete an existing view, add another view to an analysis and can also combine views.

Types of Views

All view types except logical SQL view can be edited. Each view has its own editor in which you can perform edit task.
Each view editor contains a unique functionality for that view type but might also contain functionality that is the same across view types.
