Error: 'You cannot change the Start Year after deploying' Error, When Attempting to Deploy Hyperion Planning Application from EPMA (Doc ID 750757.1)

Last updated on JULY 28, 2016

Applies to:

Hyperion Planning - Version 9.3.1.0.00 to 11.1.1.1.00 [Release 9.3 to 11.1]
Microsoft Windows (32-bit)

Symptoms

After creating new Year dimension members (EPMA -> Dimension Library -> Shared Library) and including these in an existing Planning application view, the deployment fails. The newly added year members are for financial years prior to the original Planning application start year.

EPMA validation error:

Error : You can only add years that are greater than the current year range defined for the application.

 

Some EPMA versions don't incorporate a validation routine to check the start year so that therefore validation is successful. However, Planning application deployment fails with an error in EPMA Job Console:

Detail: App Creation failed with Exception com.hyperion.planning.HspRuntimeException: You cannot change the Start Year after deploying. You must select 2008 as the Start Year before redeploying the Application View.
