(Doc ID 2353248.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 26, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Financial Consolidation and Close Cloud Service - Version 18.01.42 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

You've extracted an application snapshot from one FCCS system and you're attempting to import this snapshot into another FCCS system. Before the import, you ran the Remove Application option to clear the existing application from the target environment. The import fails with the error: "The application <name> already exists in Essbase" where "<name>" is the name of the Planning application within the imported snapshot. If you try to create a new application shell from scratch with a different name, this completes without error.
