    Default Seeing Database views in metadata

    Hi

    I am using an Oracle DB. I need to also use the views that are there. I am using Metadata 1.6.0 GA. 162

    How do I view the views. I am able to see the physical tables.

    Tks,

    You would have to need to use an update to 1.6.0. Because of an oversight, the "import from explorer" function was left out of 1.6.0.

    The fix to allow select tables/views using Explorer will be included in the 1.7 release (to be released shortly). You can try it out today by downloading the Milestone 1 from the download center - http://www.pentaho.com/download/

    Hi Guys

    Tks.

    I have downloaded Metadata 1.7.0.0.3 06. It has the import from explorer feature. I can now select a view. What it does not allow me to do is select multiple views, tables, etc? I need to click import from explorer or database explorer for each selection of a view. Because the DB schema is so large it takes at least a minute each time to gather info about DB then only can I select a view. Any ideas?


    Tks,
    Das
