"Preserve References To Old Name Of This Item" Does Not Work For Data Models in BI Publisher

(Doc ID 2320871.1)

Last updated on MARCH 13, 2018

Applies to:

BI Publisher (formerly XML Publisher) - Version 11.1.1.5.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Rename a data model with 'Preserve references to old name of this item' selected.  Try to open the report associated with the data model.  The report associated with this object can no longer find the data model correctly.


It is presumed that marking this check box should have allowed this functionality-- i.e., the report's references should be updated to reference the new data model name.
