Before you begin

Before you create a custom analysis, here are some things to note:

  • Only build a custom analysis using a single subject area. Oracle Eloqua cannot guarantee that an analysis with multiple subject areas will work or return results.
  • The Oracle Eloqua data model may change and a change could impact your custom analysis. Stay up to date with changes in the data model by joining the Eloqua Insiders group on Topliners.
