2510755 - PDI Data Source is Missing Data


You have created a data source via the Studio, however when you preview it in the system or when you create a report on it, you notice that some records from the system are not shown in the data source.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the work center Business Analytics, select view Design Data Sources.
  2. Search for your PDI data source and click on Preview.
  3. Add the fields / variables as required.

Not all expected records are shown.


The content of a PDI data source is determined - among other settings - by the anchor node. One possible cause is that you have not set the anchor node to the ROOT node, but to a lower level node instead. Hence the data source will only show those records that have entries in that subordinate node.


Please contact the creator of your PDI solution and request them to check the data source settings, and its anchor node in particular.
