OBIEE Data Viewing Default for Fixed Headers Scrolling or Content Paging

OBIEE Freeze Columns isn't really a new functionality of Oracle BI, but we had to perform some investigations after a client installed OBIEE patch 11.1.1.7.150120. Somehow the default setting for data viewing of Table and Pivot Table views changed ot Content paging and was not longer Fixed headers with scrolling content:

OBIEE Table Properties

We didn't care about it in the past, because default value was always scrolling with fixed headers. We couldn't find the following instanceconfig.xml setting in the OBIEE documentation. It's a very helpful option that enables scrolling as default when value is set to true - or defaults to content paging if set to false:

<Views>
...
  <GridViews>
    <DefaultScrollingEnabled>true</DefaultScrollingEnabled>
  </GridViews>

</Views>
