Subject Re: About degenerate dimensions on Kylin cubes

Hi Roberto,

Degenerate dimensions on fact table is not supported I think. There is only
two types dimensions: "normal" and "derived". All "normla" dimensions will
be precaculated into cube. So it affects the construction cost and query
latency. If some column in fact table do not need to be dimension, you
could define it as "extended column". The "extended column" will not be
