Last updated on MARCH 10, 2019

Applies to:

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


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.
