The State of Oregon, Department of Administrative Services (DAS), Financial Datamart is an electronic warehouse of data, which helps employees develop reports for business information and decision making.​​ 
​  ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

​​​Overview

Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE or OB1) is the query tool set to provide access to Oregon state government's financial Datamart. It is the replacement for the Hyperion (Brio) application. 

The DAS Datamart OBIEE application went live on Aug. 1, 2020 (state agencies were provided access to the OBIEE production environment between 8/1/20 and 11/1/20). 

The application can be found on the following sites. To fully view the site, a user must be connected to state government's network.

Production environment: 
https://obi.das.oregon.gov:9503/analytics/

Test environment (used for Admin only):
https://obitest.das.oregon.gov:9503/analytics/ 

Available data

Currently, the OBIEE application accesses SFMS, OSPS and ORBITS data in the DAS Datamart. (Also refer to the Repository section, below.) 

FAQ

OBIEE Common Questions

OBIEE Admin Facts - why an agency would need an OBIEE user with 'admin view' rights 

Passwords

When logging in to OBIEE there are two types of agencies, 'Sync' and 'Non-sync.' Learn which type applies to your agency here.

A 'sync' agency will use a password that is the same as the user's work computer. When the user updates their work computer password, then OBIEE automatically syncs and changes. 

A 'non-sync' agency will use the password initially provided by the Agency ARS (Active Roles Server) admin team. This password will be maintained through the OBIEE password manager site

Here are ​instructions to help non-sync users create a profile and manage their password: Password Manager User Guide.

Passwords should be updated every 90 days.

Formula creation

The following document provides guidance to employees who will create formulas that access the DAS Datamart using the OBIEE application. OBIEE Formulas

Training

Training on the use of OBIEE is required prior to using the application. Please refer to the Training section of this page for course information. 

Repository

​The OBIEE repository functions within the OBIEE server environment. All files are created with the OBIEE tool and saved to the OBIEE server. The Datamart team as well as agency users are working on building files for this repository similar to the original Datamart Hyperion repository. Thanks to users throughout the state, we continually obtain new reports to help in day-to-day operations.

​To suggest that one of your reports be added to the repository, send a sample and detailed description to datamart.support@oregon.gov.​

​​The OSPA Datamart contains data processed through the Oregon Statewide Payroll Application. Data is updated monthly following the close of the payroll month, which is around the 14th of the following month. Check the OSPS Processing Calendar for specific dates.​

The OSPA Datamart contains individual employee payroll information, including:

  • Deduct​ions​

  • Job Status

  • Labor Costing

  • Leave Accrual

  • Gross and Net Pay Detail

  • Work Schedules

  • Custom Reports: Just about anything you can think of can be queried from the OSPA Datamart and customized to your specific needs. Do you need to complete a PERS salary breakdown? How about finding out how often someone uses sick leave? Curious about usage statistics for parking? All of these and much more can be queried from the OSPA Datamart.

  • Identify Errors: Use the OSPA Datamart to query for specific pay or deduction codes that give you trouble. For example, use the OSPA Datamart to ensure that each SEIU union deduction code has an accompanying issues code. Or, query to ensure that insurances are being forced using post tax rather than pre-tax plan codes.

  • Monitor for Potential Abuse: The OSPA Datamart is ideal for doing spot queries to ensure that usage of pay codes fall within normal tolerances. For instance, you can run a query on a specific class to inquire about comp time accrual, then measure that against an expected average. Or, query specific employee groups for abnormal overtime usage.

​​The OSPA Datamart does not contain: 

  • Confidential Information, such as Social Security numbers, wage withholding/garnishment info, bank account information or certain insurance surcharges

  • Data sourced from other applications such as salary range or employee addresses

  • Detailed daily time information if not using Online Daily Time or eTime.​

​​The following lists detail the fields available in each of the OSPA Datamart's six major tables. For a master list of all available fields, see the last portion of this section.​​

*** This table was created to provide historical data for various OSPS fields not contained on other OSPS Datamart tables, specifically the 'Final Check Issued date', 'Final Check Period End Date', and the 'Retirement Date' from the P010 screen in OSPS. 

Table extensions reference

Each of the OSPA Datamart tables has historic data available from 07/01/11 to current.

Please note: As of Aug. 11, 2017, four tables have been combined into one, eliminating three extra file extension views (i.e. OSPS_DED vs. OSPS_DED_B, OSPS_DED_PB, and OSPS_DED_PP).

It will be important to update your queries that are using the old file extensions (_B, _PB, and _PP). These queries must be updated to point to the OSPS table with no file extension. Make sure to go into the properties of the table (double click on the top of the table) and alter the 'physical name' to contain no extension.

With this change, it has become more important to make sure each OSPS query has at least two filters. One is 'Agency' and the other is a time period such as 'Pay Period End', 'Pay Proc Date', etc. These two filters will allow your query to run at its optimal level.​
