How To Share Resources With the Same Name Across Departments ? (Doc ID 2187402.1)

Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

We have resource 'LABOR' in Department1 and Department2. Both the resources are assigned different resource instances / employees.
We would like to share resource LABOR between these two departments.

We have checked the Share check box, but, when trying to enter Borrowed Resource – We see error 'FRM 40212 Invalid value for field RESOURCE_CODE' 

Why does the application allow creation of a resource, with the same name, in multiple departments?
 
It appears that the Department -> Resources form validation is based on the resource name alone, not the combination of resource name and department. User should not be allowed to create the same resource in different departments, if they are not allowed use of each of the same shared resources from a different department.
