See Adding Sequence Numbers to a Time Dimension's Logical Level.
DISPLAY | SORTKEY Syntax Supported in the SQL ORDER BY Expression
The Oracle BI Server accepts the
SORTKEY keywords in the SQL
ORDER BY expression. You can use the
DISPLAY keyword to override a logical column's assigned sort order column. See ORDER BY Clause Syntax in Logical SQL Reference Guide for Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition.
Oracle Database Fast Application Notification and Fast Connection Failover Supported by Oracle BI Server
The Oracle BI Server supports the Fast Application Notification (FAN) event and Fast Connection Failover (FCF) Oracle Database configuration. Fast Connection Failover enables quick failover when the data source's Oracle database is not available. See Oracle Database Fast Application Notification and Fast Connection Failover .
