Planning Error "Base Time Period members cannot be added once the dimension is deployed" and Unable to Deploy Planning Application after Creating Alternate Period Hierarchy (Doc ID 1600108.1)

Last updated on JULY 28, 2016

Applies to:

Hyperion Planning - Version 11.1.2.2.300 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

When creating an alternate hierarchy in the Planning application's period dimension the following error occurs when trying to deploy the application:

Error : Period dimension 'Period' contains a Base Time Period member 'May' that has been added since the last deployment. Base Time Period members cannot be added once the dimension is deployed.

The Member "May" has been shared under a new hierarchy parent member and setup as "alternate time period".

It is not possible to undo this and simply remove May from the dimension, the same error still occurs.
