Setting Up the Reporting Meta Layer

The following sections describe the basic structure of the RML, and the behavior and maintenance of its views.

RML views are essentially SQL statements that return specific, useful data from the PPM database, providing direct mapping to the business entities defined in PPM applications.

Any third-party reporting software capable of connecting to an Oracle database and running query statements in SQL can use the Reporting Meta Layer. RML views are used by including them in query statements.
