Oracle Hyperion DRM Technical Issue | Integration with EBS

Hi everyone!

We just stumbled upon an interesting change in the latest version (11.1.2.3) of Oracle Hyperion Data Relationship Manager (DRM). For performance reasons,
Oracle has decided to limit the number of tables Oracle Hyperion DRM can detect when you define an external connection to 2000.

This is usually not a problem. However, if you follow the DRM Oracle General Ledger Integration Guide you’ll see that you ‘must’ use the APPS schema to integrate DRM to E-Business Suite (EBS). This schema usually has more than 2000 tables associated. This means there is a risk that the two target tables used by DRM (GL_DRM_SEGVALUES_INTERFACE and GL_DRM_HIERARCHY_INTERFACE) will be missing from the list of tables for the external connection.

Despite what the integration guide says, however, you can in fact define a different database user with write access to just these two tables and gain access to them that way.

Note that Oracle has logged an enhancement request to remove this restriction, so future releases may not come with this limitation. We experienced this with DRM 11.1.2.3.303.

We hope this is useful.
