The registration process creates the following items:

  • The application's default view
  • A viewpoint and related data objects for each registered dimension

The viewpoints and data objects created by the registration process are bound to dimensions. When you import data, the data is contained by the viewpoint bound to the dimension. When you export, the bound viewpoint's data is exported, see Understanding Bindings and Bound Data Objects.

The following diagram illustrates the relationship of an external application's dimensions or segments to Oracle Enterprise Data Management Cloud dimensions:

Shows the relationship of external and registered applications as described in the previous paragraphs.

Each of the external application's dimensions is bound to a dimension in the registered application.


You can create unbound data objects.

  • The Owner permission on the application's default view
  • The Owner permission on the application
