Repository and Web Catalog Merge in OBIEERepository and Web Catalog Merge in OBIEE

Here by this Article, I am trying to explain the concepts which would be helpful to you when working on BI projects in development environment, and make the Objects ready to deploy on Production. And these concepts are merging of metadata & web catalogs built during the project development. Here I am using 2 repositories. One is the default Paint Repository and the other is the Usage Tracking repository that is bundled along with BI EE. Our aim is to get the contents of the Usage Tracking Repository into the Paint repository.In first part I will explain how to merge two repositories and later will see how to merge two catalogs.


About:
One of the features of OBI EE is that one can merge repositories. So if you have 2 repositories each having its own set then you can use the Merge option to merge both of them into a single repository. Before going ahead, lets try to understand 3 important terms that would be used while merging.

Current Repository – This is the repository that you would be merging the changes into. This is the repository that would be open while merging.

Original Repository – This is the repository which is the pivot for Merge. This is just a dummy repository.

Modified Repository – This is the repository whose objects you would like to copy to the Current Repository.

Purpose:
What merging would do is, it would merge the difference of the repository objects that you would find between Original and the Current Repository and also the Original and the Modified Repository. Let’s try to understand this with a simple example. In our example, we will be using 2 repositories. One is the default Paint Repository and the other is the Usage Tracking repository that is bundled along with BI EE. Our aim is to get the contents of the Usage Tracking Repository into the Paint repository. Let’s look at the contents of both the repositories. Paint.rpd would be located under {OracleBI}/Server/Repository and the Usage Tracking.rpd would be located under {OracleBI}/Server/Samples/ usagetracking
