atoti.query.hierarchy module

class atoti.query.hierarchy.QueryHierarchy(_name, _dimension, _levels, _slicing)

Hierarchy of a query cube.

property dimension: str

Name of the dimension of the hierarchy.

A dimension is a logical group of attributes (e.g. Geography). It can be thought of as a folder containing hierarchies.

Return type



Return a condition to check that the hierarchy is on one of the given members.

Considering hierarchy_1 containing level_1 and level_2, hierarchy_1.isin((a,), (b, x)) is equivalent to (level_1 == a) OR ((level_1 == b) AND (level_2 == x)).


members – One or more members expressed as tuples on which the hierarchy should be. Each element in a tuple corresponds to a level of the hierarchy, from the shallowest to the deepest.

Return type


property levels: atoti._mappings.ImmutableMapping[str, atoti.query.level.QueryLevel]

Levels of the hierarchy.

Return type

ImmutableMapping[str, QueryLevel]

property name: str

Name of the hierarchy.

Return type


property slicing: bool

Whether the hierarchy is slicing or not.

  • A regular (or non-slicing) hierarchy is considered aggregatable, meaning that it makes sense to aggregate data across all members of the hierarchy.

    For instance, for a Geography hierarchy, it is useful to see the worldwide aggregated Turnover across all countries.

  • A slicing hierarchy is not aggregatable at the top level, meaning that it does not make sense to aggregate data across all members of the hierarchy.

    For instance, for an As of date hierarchy giving the current bank account Balance for a given date, it does provide any meaningful information to aggregate the Balance across all the dates.
