Metric Studio - No Data
« on: 29 Oct 2009 03:42:56 am »
Hello All,

I'm both new to this forum (so Hello :D) and new to Metric studio and -designer. To get used to the designer and the studio i am following the tutorials on the IBM-Site (http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/c8bi/v8r4m0/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm.swg.im.cognos.ug_cra.8.4.0.doc/). I have mapped data from a testcube with the "extract metrics" Wizzard. All testresults showed Data for each scorecard and metric. And now the problem: after executing the metricsextract and importing it into the metric studio i can't see any values for the metrics (in the metric studio), there are just scorecards with empty metrics. has anyone an idea of why this is happening or what i should take care of?

Kind regards

Hi Valentin, Obviously, there is something which is not working as desired. When you execute your Metrics Extract and it is successful, go and check the table 'KPI_VALUE_STAGE' in the metric store. It should  have all the data you want to see in the Metric Studio. Make sure you do the distinct count on the rows and make a note of it. Then run your command 'Transfer data from staging area into metric store'. After this is run completely. Go to the metric store and check the table 'KPI_VALUE_STAGE_REJECTS' and check the number of rows. This is going to give you an idea and starting point for you troublehsooting. Make sure the Metric Mapping for all the measures/KPIs are done properly. Actual, Target etc....I hope this helps you.

Dear all,

I have the same problem, however I have managed to identify this as a mapping problem between metrics and metric types in Metric Designer. I am using v8.4. When the mapping is done by hand - all works OK and all values appear as it should.
However, I have hundreds of metric types and hundreds of metrics, therefore am looking for a some sort of automation for this mapping. Does anybody of you gurus know a solution to this? I have connected the metric_type_ID for the DIM_Metric_Type in Framework to the metric_type_ID in the Fact table - no use.
I am clueless and need a solution or a workaround of any kind to this ASAP.
If Metric Designer doesn't support it - this is also an answer.
I am truly stuck because of it.

Thank you in advance,
