Activate a new navigation attribute in a cube - now or later?

hi,

I have created a new navigation attribute in a characteristic. However all attribute values are still initial as next data load for this char is scheduled in two weeks time (attribute values are filled by ABAP routine).

This char is component of an old cube (loaded every day) and I want to activate this navigational attribute in cube. I am not sure if I can activate it now or should I wait till attribute values will be filled (i.e. in two weeks time)?

If I activate attirbute in cube now does it lead to generation of wrong SIDs in dimension tables?

Regards,

Andrzej

    hi Andrzej,

    just activate/turn on this infoobject in infocube now.

    won't generate wrong SID.

    later attribute/hierarchy change run will re-align.

    hope this helps.

    Hello Aksik

    a display attribute turned to navigation is P table to Q table. it is not related to SID tables and so won't affect the SID generation at all.

    You can always change a display attribute to navigational. Attribute change run will avoid inconsistencies and realign the same...

    Hope it helps..

    thanks,

      Hi,

      You can activate the info object in the infocube. It won't have any effect on the SID generation . The Hierarchy/Attribute Change Run will get it realigned.
