Issue deleting multiple members from a dimension – BPC 10.1 NW SP5
Warning : only delete a single member before processing a dimension using BPC 10.1 Standard (NetWeaver) SP5
Only a single record in the BW table is deleted when deleting multiple dimension members through the BPC dimension admin.
We have managed to resolve this issue by applying note 2164233.
I have tested this at 3 different customer installations of BPC. This has been raised as a message with SAP, but I thought it worth sharing.
Scenario 1: Delete multiple members of a dimension through the BPC dimension maintenance.
7 members have been added to a dummy dimension
Starting position – members appear OK in both BPC and BW
Delete 4 members from BPC then process the dimension
Only a single member is removed from BW
Refreshing the BPC dimension using UJA_REFRESH_DIM_CACHE results in the members reappearing in BPC.
Scenario 2: Reuse a member ID but with a different case.
DELTEST5 has been previously deleted as a part of a multi delete and had been left in the BW database.
A new member DELTESt5 is added
Both DELTEST5 and DELTESt5 appear in the BW
