OBIEE Database Type for Teradata Database

Posted by Santosh Kumar Gidadmani on September 21, 2014

If you import the physical schema into the physical layer, the database name and type are usually assigned automatically. However, if the OBIEE server cannot determine the database type, an approximate database type is assigned to the database object. If necessary, replace the database type with the closet matching entry from the database drop down list.

Example: When you import the data from Teradata Database (tables or views), by default the OBIEE database type will be V2R6 but the latest database type will be different. I have connected to Teadata Database version 14.10 the OBIEE database type should be V13 as shown in second screen shot below.

Default Database Type


If you keep the Teradata V2R6, you will get the database features warning during global consistency check (the features in database ‘Semantic Views’ do not match the defaults).

Change to V13


When we have the closet database type, you should not see any errors or warning messages on the database features.
