Changing the Bound Viewpoint for a Dimension

Alternate viewpoints are created outside of application registration and thus by default are not bound to an external application. If you need to import or export data for an alternate viewpoint, you must bind the alternate viewpoint to an external object by inspecting the Oracle Enterprise Data Management Cloud dimension for the binding and changing the bound viewpoint.

The procedure for changing the bound viewpoint depends on the application type:

  • Planning applications support binding to a single external dimension within an Oracle Enterprise Data Management Cloud dimension. If you want to bind an alternate viewpoint, you edit the existing binding and change it to point to your alternate viewpoint. See Binding a Viewpoint to a Dimension in Planning and FreeForm Applications.

  • Oracle Financials Cloud General Ledger applications support binding to multiple external objects (segment/value sets and trees) within an Oracle Enterprise Data Management Cloud dimension. You can change an existing bound viewpoint (for example, if you no longer want to export an old version of a tree), or you can create a new binding by copying an existing binding (for example, if you want to add a new bound version of a tree but you also want to keep the existing bound tree versions). See Copying Bindings to Create Trees or Tree Versions.

  • Financial Consolidation and Close applications support binding to a single external dimension within an Oracle Enterprise Data Management Cloud dimension. If you want to bind an alternate viewpoint, you edit the existing binding and change it to point to your alternate viewpoint. See Binding a Viewpoint to a Dimension in Financial Consolidation and Close Applications.

  • Universal applications support binding to a single external dimension within an Oracle Enterprise Data Management Cloud dimension. If you want to bind an alternate viewpoint, you edit the existing binding and change it to point to your alternate viewpoint. You can also customize the node types and properties in the dimension. See Changing the Viewpoint Bound to a User Defined Dimension in Universal Applications.
