Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE or OB1) OBIEE Security Access Process
- Added July 14, 2020.
Provides guidance to ASOs about the process to assign or revoke user access to OBIEE, statewide policy surrounding OBIEE, and procedures to request a password reset.
Note: Please see the new OBIEE security request form on the SARS System Security website. Authorized ASOs use this form to request OBIEE access.
PPDB standard view access:

(PPDB) and the related tables in Datamart. Please c
ontact them at
: With the implementation of
Workday in February 2019, the DAS Datamart will no longer update PPDB information as
Workday is the system of record. With this change, the DAS Datamart will only contain PPDB data through Feb 1, 2019.
ORBITS/PICS standard view access:

Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE or OB1) is the query tool set to provide access to the State of Oregon's Financial Datamart. It is the replacement for the Hyperion (Brio) application. The DAS Datamart OBIEE application 'Go live' date was August 01, 2020 (see agency rollout process below). This application is web based and can be found on the following sites. To fully view the site, a user must be working on the State of Oregon network.
Production environment: https://obi.das.oregon.gov:9503/analytics/
Test environment: https://obitest.das.oregon.gov:9503/analytics/ (Used for Admin only)
Note: State of Oregon agencies were provided access to the OBIEE production environment from 8/01/20 to 11/01/20.
The OBIEE pdf file describes common questions for the OBIEE project.
OBIEE Admin Facts.pdf: The pdf document will help Agency Security Officers and OBIEE users understand why an agency would need an OBIEE user with 'admin view' rights.
Passwords: When logging into the OBIEE application there are two types of agencies, 'Sync' and 'Non-sync'.
A 'sync' agency will use a password that is the same as they use for their work computer. If you update your work computer password then OBIEE will automatically sync and change as well.
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 to create a profile and manage their password (Password_Manager_User_Guide.pdf).
Passwords should be updated every 90 days.
If you do not know if your agency is 'sync' or 'non-sync', please review this document: Sync-vs-Non-Sync_20210510.xlsx:
Formula: This pdf document was created to provide guidance with formula creation for State of Oregon employees who access the DAS Datamart using the OBIEE application. OBIEE FORMULA-June2021.pdf
Important note: Training is required, prior to using the product. A beginning level training is available through iLearn.
Important note: Currently, the OBIEE application only accesses SFMS and OSPS data in the DAS Datamart.
User Maintenance site:
Go here to change your Datamart (RACF) password, request your account be reset, view your current query connections or stop a query. This password is used when accessing programs that use the RACF ID password structure. Once you receive Datamart security access and the initial temporary password, you have 48 hours to change the password on the
Datamart User Maintenance
site. The site is compatible with Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome.
Scheduled classroom trainings: (Trainings are normally scheduled once a month; however, due to covid-19, they are on an extended break. Sorry for the inconvenience.)*

Datamart Work Request form
- Use this form to request improvements and/or changes to the Datamart, for example, new fields, tables, joins, etc. This form is to be completed and submitted electronically by using the 'Submit by E-mail' button.
The DAS Datamart has two main repository associated with it. The Datamart Hyperion repository and the OBIEE repository. These are two separate repository yet both pull data from the DAS Datamart. These repositories are a great tool to help shared standard reports with users on a statewide level.
The Datamart Hyperion repository contains 49 files, which access data from SFMA, ORBITS, & OSPA. To learn more about how to access the repository and what each file includes:
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, 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.
If you have any reports which you believe would be a good fit to join either repository, please send them, along with a detailed description, to
Potential (Hyperion) query tool issues:

SFMA Datamart Tables
- Listing of Financial and Profile tables. Contains data warehouse fields, field length, source, and descriptions. Note: To obtain additional detailed information about the SFMA tables, please refer to the 'Datamart and Hyperion: Back to Basics Manual' (page 2-16 through 2-22), in pdf form, shown in the 'Datamart Training' section of this website.Join-Diagram2013
- This file displays the 'All Acct Event' table joined to the various 'Profile' tables within the SFMA Datamart.
- Comparison of fields between the GL Detail and the GL Summary tables.
R*Stars Actuals at the Budget Level
- R*Stars integration established a one-to-one relationship between the ORBITS Cross-Reference number and the R*Stars Program Code; providing a link between budget (ORBITS) and accounting (R*Stars).
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:
- 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 troubles. 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 enquire 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.
Datamart table reference lists
These 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 for the ACA data to help agencies view all agency ACA info.
**This table was created for DAS OSPS statewide unit only.
***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 to 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.
