When attempting to import a mapping that was exported from another master / work repository (MR/WR) into a versioned MR/WR where a mapping existed previously but was deleted, the following error occurs when adding the object for versioning:

ODI-12050: Unable to add object [Mapping:MAP_DWH_CON_TRANS_TH_DWH_VBS_BEWERBER_PERS], as an ODI artifact exists with the same name in Subversion repository.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Delete mapping from branch repository
  2. Clone trunk repository, login with ODI Studio and don't apply or configure any versioning
  3. Modify the same mapping that was deleted in branch and export it
  4. Import the mapping to branch, ie: right-click on Mappings, and select to import using synonym insert_update mode
  5. Select to add the mapping to Apache Subversion (SVN), ie: right-click on mapping, select "Version" Add to VCS....
