Can we replace existing object(dimension) with new object on design studio without manual work?

Hello all,

I have a dashboard which is built on Design studio 1.6 sp2.

Now there is a change request that I need to replace a dimension called "0Material_Division" with "Zdivision". As i have used "0Material_Division" in N number of places(in coding) through out the dashboard, it is very tedious work to replace manually.

Is there any way that we can replace "0Material_Division" with "Zdivision" at single shot or any easy way?

Thanks

Vijai Muniraj

    Hi Vijai - do you mean replace all scripting? I don't think so.

    Maybe later this week you can check Lumira Designer 2.1 which will have this feature:

    "Lumira Designer 2.1 offers creating “composites at run time based on selection”

    Hi Vijai,

    Although it is not officially SAP supported, you could try the following approach to save you the effort of manually updating all references to the dimension:

    1) Unzip the BIAPP file of your Design Studio application

    2) Open the XML file in a text editor

    3) Perform a search and replace on “0Material_Division” replacing it with “Zdivision”

    4) Save the updated XML file

    5) Re-zip the BIAPP file

    6) Open the application in Design Studio

    Regards,

    Mustafa.
