Duplicate Dimension Member Names in OFSAA Version 8.0.x? (Doc ID 2608945.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 13, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Financial Services Analytical Applications Infrastructure - Version 8.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

For a given customer using OFSAA 4.5, the used PFT hierarchies have multiple levels and use same node name across many levels.
These nodes have unique ID number, however they have the same Node name / description. In some dimensions, the leaf description is also repeating.

In OFSAA version 8, duplicate names are not allowed for dimension members. Why is this constraint put in the newer versions of OFSAA?

Please suggest if Duplicate Description can be allowed in current version (with any parameter/ setting change).
