ODI Tip: How to make sure a “Select distinct” is issued and an ODI interface returns a unique dataset with no duplicates

PROBLEM

 

As a developer I do have a need to make sure that the subset of columns I am mapping through from source to target on my ODI interface is unique, in other words, I want ODI to include a DISTINCT clause on the SELECT statement that will be issued on the source database.

 

SOLUTION

  • Open my interface on the ODI Interface designer
  • Click on the Flow tab on the bottom
  • Click on the Target object
  • On the Property Inspector, click on the “Distinct Rows” checkbox
