Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

 OBIEE 11.1.1.7.x

After renaming a presentation subject area in my OBIEE repository you can no longer  edit an existing Answer analysis that uses this subject area, the message  

"Either you do not have permission to use the subject area within Answers, or the subject area does not exist."

appears on the left side.

It is not possible to edit an analysis unless you click on the Advanced tab and edit the XML to reflect the current subject area name. It ignores the alias that was created.
