'ORA-00972: identifier is too long' Error while Loading Data from Oracle in to Essbase Table (Doc ID 1309360.1)

When loading data from Oracle to Essbase using ODI, the Interface Load data (or metadata) into Essbase step fails:

java.sql.SQLException: ORA-00972: identifier is too long

Specifically, the code that failed with this error is selecting from Oracle source table:

This is due to the length of the long Essbase column which is >32 characters.

We tried changing the short description for this Essbase column in the Model but it still fails. We do not have an option of reducing the length of the column in the Essbase because of other business complications.

Is there a a workaround wherein the target Essbase column "VERY_LONG_COLUMN_NAME_ON_ESSBASE" can be retained for its length and still be mapped and get loaded?
