Hierarchy Update - Not Overwrite

In BPC 10.1 we have our data manager package for company and account hierarchy update based on what the backend system shows as the hierarchy. Also, our business users like to update the hierarchy on the frontend (in BPC 10.1 web interface) on how they want to see the members displayed. They move some of the members around in the hierarchy based on how they want to see it. However, the next month they import master data, the data manager package overwrites the changes they made even though the package is configured to 'Update' and not 'Overwrite'.

In BPC 7.5 the system did not overwrite any changes to the member hierarchy that the users made on the frontend.

We are looking to see if BPC 10.1 treats 'Update' differently from BPC 7.5? If so, how can we configure BPC 10.1 to 'Update' and not overwrite even with the update option selected?

  • Sorry, if some person is writing that he has no time to correct the question assigning the meaningful tag or unable to do it, why I have to spend time to explain you what is the difference between BPC 7.5 with special property for sorting and BPC 10/10.1 where hierarchy sorting is done by hierarchy ID's???

    The comment about 'no time' is about not having the timing for jokes since you were asking if the incorrect tag was some sort of a joke. It is def not a joke and upon trying to fix the tag SAP gave me an internal error.

  • Everybody can correct the tag in the question! Try another browser or ask question in "Using SAP.com" It's absolutely trivial thing.

    Vadim,

    I was having a hard time with this new web interface from SAP - thanks for providing correct tag.

    In the screenshot you can see the selection I have made to only 'update' my hierarchy and not overwrite the changes made to the hierarchy on the frontend in BPC 10.1. Unfortunately, this package continues to overwrite even with the 'update' selection. hierarchy-selection.pngtransformation-file.png

    Unfortunately it won't allow me to change the tag - unless you know of a way...?

    BW version is 7.4 (740) SP 12

    EPM is SP 23.2

    Hi Andrey,

    As per this document PG.NO. 17.

    http://www.sap.com/documents/2015/08/26ef2552-557c-0010-82c7-eda71af511fa.html

    Section BPC Data Manager – Run Package

    In contrast to the BW master data package which can be run in update or overwrite mode, the BW hierarchy import package always works in overwrite mode. Be advised it also clears any other existing hierarchies which are not specified in the Data Manager package Set Selection filter and Conversion File mapping. So if you need to import more than one BW hierarchy from the same source InfoObject into BPC, it is necessary to transfer these in the same Data Manager package execution step rather than in separate execution runs to avoid clearing the other hierarchies.

    Workarounds are suggested in the documents. I guess this behaviour might not have been changed in 10 & 10.1.

    Regards,

    JP
