Step: 10) Give appropriate name to logical schema and set the Context to Hyperion planning physical schema.

Step: 11) Click on ‘Save’. Step: 12) Go to the ODI Designer and create new Project with appropriate name.

Step: 13) Click on ‘Save’. You can check in the project tab

Step: 14) Expand project go to knowledge module right click and import following knowledge modules. RKM Hyperion Planning LKM File to SQL IKM SQL to Hyperion Planning

Step: 17) Now go to the model tab and create new model.

Step: 18) In the definition tab enter the details

Step:19) Go to the Reverse Engineer tab select customize check box and enter details as follows:

Step:20) ‘Save’ Step:21) Newly created Model will be available for Reverse Engineering go to Model tab select Hyperion planning model and Right Click and select Reverse Engineers. Before Reverse Engineer the models make sure your agent services are running if not start it with following command: C:\oracle\Middleware\Oracle_ODI1\oracledi\agent\bin>agent –NAME=localagent

Step: 22) Now you can reverse engineer it.

Press ‘OK’. Step: 23) Go to the Operator Tab check whether the Execution run successfully or not.

If all the checks are green that means your model reversed successfully.

Step: 24) Go to the Designer and open model tab expand Hyperion planning model again. You can check all the dimensions are visible there from your planning application.

Dimension Loading to Hyperion Planning Application
Pre-Requisite Steps ODI cannot create the Planning Application The application will have to be created in Planning first All the dimensions will have to be defined first in Planning One dimension load per interface Chained interfaces in Packages to do multiple dimension loads Uses Hyperion RMI Service Loads into interface tables Refresh to Essbase available

Once you have completed the file make sure you save it in the file store directory you set up in the topology manager, in my case: “C:\oracle\Middleware\Oracle_ODI1\oracledi\Demo\Planning\Account_Dim_Load.csv” Now we have to create a model and datastore that will pick up the file. Insert a new DataStore and give it a name and if you click browse for file button it should open up in the correct directory and you can select the csv file.

In the files tab as we are using a CSV file then choose Fie Format as delimited, the file has a header row so it was set to 1, the field separator was set to other and as a comma (,)

click the Columns tab then the Reverse button and all being well the file structure should be retrieved.

Ok we have created the source and target elements so now we have to put them together to bring them together and this is done by creating an interface, back to the projects tab and insert a new interface. Give it a name and make sure the context is selected, next check “Staging Area Different from Target” and choose “SUNOPSIS_MEMORY_ENGINE”.

This allows any transformations between the source and target to be handled by the memory engine, an example being if you have a column header named DS in the source file and in the planning target it goes to Data Storage then the memory engine will handle this mapping. Go to mapping tab first drag you Account Flat file datastore from the models window into the source window and then drag the reversed account dimension datastore into the target window, select yes for the automatic mapping. What this will do is automatically map the column headings of your file to the target planning dimension, if you create the file with exactly the same headings as the dimension properties then you will have less work to do.

Once you have completed the entire mappings click on the Flow tab and a diagram should be displayed outlining the process.

If you click on the Target there are a number of options available like setting up error logging and the ability to refresh to Essbase after the load has completed.

After applying changes you can execute the interface and the data in the file should be loaded into planning, you can check in the Operator to see how the process went.
