!nctionalit' is not straight !orward. The word *"t o! Bo&+ reall' con!ses cstomers. stomers assme no con!igration and setps are re)ired to se this !nctionalit'. However the assmptionis completel' wrong. The setp o! #P re)ires !nctional nderstanding o! bsiness with H'perion Planning technical $nowledge. The !irst and most import step o! #P setp is modi!ication o! prebilt bsiness rle *BIpdate+. #P enabled application creates BIpdate/name o! plan t'pe0 rle !or each plan t'pe. reation and modi!ication o! #P rn this rle on planning server. This rle pdates vales on Essbase to trac$ recrring and non-recrring bdget re)est. I was not aware abot this !act and tr' to create a baseline decision pac$et and got the below given error so I thoght to share with 'o.
The purpose of this article is to provide you an understanding of BIUpdateXXXX rule and modication reuirement before to create decision pac!ages. If decision pac!age option is enabled during the application creation process" it will create BIupdateXXXXXX rule for each plan type #$here XXXX denotes the plan type name%. &ince custom dimension are added after the application creation. The application creation process does not !now what members should be added in the rule. 'owever this theory does not apply on '(P plan type because '(P comes with )ut of bo* dimension and no modication is reuired at most of the time. The modication of BIupdateXXX rule is only reuired on custom plan types where you have to add custom dimension. The default rule creates a * statement with +,IX #-Period- -/ear- -0ntity-&cenario2 3ersion2%4member combination. This combination is perfect if we don5t add any custom dimension but most of the time we have to add custom dimension to meet reuirements.
I will ta$e an e&le !rom one o! m' application where I had !ew cstom dimensions. The de!alt rle does not have all the members and will not wor$ !or below given otline. 1et sa', i! we have to pdate BIpdate rle as per the below given dimension. I will go ahead and add !ollowing member /nspeci!ied2ctivit', nspeci!ied IPPro3ect,Totalnd,nspeci!ied1ocation, and so on to each dimensions0. These nspeci!ied members will be sed to tac$ data in BIpdate rle.
