Working with Slowly Changing Dimensions

Working with Slowly Changing Dimensions

You can push Type 1 and Type 3 slowly changing dimensions logic to a database. The slowly changing dimensions logic in a mapping can be comprised of multiple transformations. The rules and guidelines of each transformation determine how much slowly changing dimensions logic you can push to a database.
Use the following rules and guidelines when you configure the Integration Service to push slowly changing dimensions transformation logic to a database:
  • You can push transformations included in Type 1 and Type 3 slowly changing dimensions mapping to an Oracle or IBM DB2 database.
  • The source data must not have duplicate rows. The database can become deadlocked if it makes multiple updates to the same row.
  • You must create the slowly changing dimensions mapping using the Slowly Changing Dimensions Wizard version 8.5 or higher. You cannot push the slowly changing dimensions logic to the database if it was created by the Slowly Changing Dimensions Wizard from a previous version.
