Using a Variable to Specify the Name of a Catalog or Schema
You can use a variable to specify the names of catalog and schema objects. For example, you have data for multiple clients and you structured the database so that data for each client was in a separate catalog. You would initialize a session variable named Client, for example, that could be used to set the name for the catalog object dynamically when a user signs on to the Analytics Server.
NOTE: The Dynamic Name tab is not active unless at least one session variable is defined.
To specify the session variable to use in the Dynamic Name tab
- In the Name column of the Dynamic Name tab, click the name of the session variable that you want to use. The initial value for the variable (if any) is shown in the Default Initializer column.
- To select the highlighted variable, click Select.
The name of the variable appears in the dynamic name field, and the Select button toggles to the Clear button.
To remove assignment for a session variable in the Dynamic Name tab
To sort column entries in the Dynamic Name tab
- You can sort the entries in a column by clicking on the associated column heading, Name or Default Initializer. Clicking on a column heading toggles the order of the entries in that column between ascending and descending order, according to the column type.
When no dynamic name is assigned, Not Assigned displays in the dynamic name field to the left of the Select button. When a dynamic name is assigned, the Select button toggles to the Clear button, and the name of the variable displays in the dynamic name field.
