Subject [jira] [Commented] (KYLIN-1313) Enable deriving dimensions on non PK/FK
Date Wed, 13 Jan 2016 09:52:40 GMT


Yerui Sun commented on KYLIN-1313:

That's really a useful feature for us, but seems required some complicated working on it.
[~mahongbin], may you share your schedule for this issue? If there's already clearly designing,
maybe we could work together to speed it up.

> currently derived column has to be columns on look table, and the derived host column
has to be PK/FK(It's also a problem when the lookup table grows every large). Sometimes columns
on the fact exhibit deriving relationship too. Here's an example fact table:
> (dt date, seller_id bigint, seller_name varchar(100) , item_id bigint, item_url varchar(1000),
count decimal, price decimal)
> seller_name is uniquely determined by each seller id, and item_url is uniquely determined
by each item_id. The users does not expect to do filtering on columns like seller name or
item_url, they just want to retrieve it when they do grouping/filtering on other dimensions
like selller id, item id or even other dimensions like dt.
