OBIA Customization - Configure SCD behavior for added custom dimension column

In Oracle Business Intelligence Applications, customization is defined as changing the preconfigured behavior to enable you to analyze new information in your business intelligence dashboards. For example, you might want to add a column to a dashboard by extracting data from the source field and storing it in the Oracle Business Analytics Warehouse in the X_<Column_Name> field.

For added custom dimension column, you must configure SCD behavior after reversing it into ODI model so that the load plan can populate data to that column. The following describes how to configure this:
  1. In ODI Designer, modify the dimension datastore. In the Models view, expand the 'Oracle BI Applications' folder, Oracle BI Applications (Model), Dimension (Submodel), and Columns.
  2. Double-click the column whose SCD behavior you want to change.
  3. In the Description subtab's 'Slowly Changing Dimensions Behavior' drop-down list, select the column behavior. To implement Type I behavior, select Overwrite on Change. To implement Type II behavior, select Add Row on Change.
