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?

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 Tammy,

Thank you for prompt response.

My requirement is that where ever i used "0Material_Division" in scripting, I need to replace it with "Zdivision".

i.e If i used "0Material_Division" 200 time in scripting all over the dashboard that i need to replace it manually. (I used not only in scripting but used it for chart, score card etc.,)



Unfortunately there is no replace all in Design Studio scripting; unless someone in the community has a clever idea...

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
