Attributes definition is a part of the BellaDati's data warehouse modelling. All attributes have an unique code beginning with "L_" prefix (L as level) that serves as unique identifier (eg. for counts, filtering, custom members definition, etc.).

    Instance of particular attribute is called member.

     

    Creating Attribute

    Attributes can be created in three different ways:

    Icon

    Attribute name must be unique in the whole data set. Otherwise warning message will be displayed and the attribute will not be saved.

    Icon

    When the data set is a part of join, you can choose if you want to propagate new attribute to joined data set (by checking the propagation option in dialog window).

    Editing Attribute

    You can modify the attribute by clicking on it's name in the list. Display dialogue window will allow you to:

    • Change attribute name
    • Change attribute code
    • Change ETL column name

     

    Icon
    1. All changes in attributes name will influence immediately all existing Reports and Dashboards containing affected attributes.
    2. Changing of attribute name does not affect it's code - code needs to be changed in separate field.
    3. Changing of attribute name will not affect attribute's names in joined data sets.
    4. Changing of attribute code may influence existing reports and calculations where this particular code is used.
    5. Attribute code must start with "L_" prefix.

    Deleting Attribute

    The attribute will be deleted with all corresponding data.

    Icon

    Attribute removal will influence immediately all existing Reports and Dashboards (including filters and custom members). All data assigned to this attribute will be deleted.
