There’s a bug in OBIEE that renders time-series OBIEE function AGO useless if you’re using Filter on Logical Table Source (Content – WHERE). Apparently, the query generating AGO doesn’t pick it up and as a result – you will not see correct report. It might affect you in many ways if you’re using the LTS filters. The fix that Oracle suggested was to upgrade to, however, it’s not possible at the moment. We’ve created database views applying necessary filters there. Performance-wise we got a hit, but our business intelligence server is showing correct data.
