Can we change the Universe object names via sdk without import and export of it?


We have many universes and tons of objects in them. During the release we update the object names using a sdk code which imports the universe changes the object label/name and exports back the universe to the CMS. This takes some time and process becomes resource intensive because of multiple import/export operations.

Is there a way we can just change the names of the object of the universe without importing and exporting the universe via SDK?

    No way because the actual objects of the universe are either in .dfx/.cnx/.cnx. You need to make make changes to them only by importing and exporting them.

    • Thanks Mani,

      Wouldn't it be nice if we can change the object name/label using sdk and underlying DB field remains the same? This would save lot of time for scenarios like ours and would consume less system resources. It's like dynamic object labels controlled outside of the universe design tool. I am sure SAP has there own reasons to not allow this. Thanks
