Minimise customer impact on customizations while upgrading, repairing, updating or changing the models (Eg: Financial Consolidation)

Customer Challenge:

Currently, all items in Reports, Report Designer, Tasks and Integrator are removed before being replaced by the (new) content from the model packages. As a result customer/ consultants do not want to upgrade their existing working model.

Suggestions to overcome the challenge:

To minimize the impact on customization, the platform should check for

  1. Preserve any non-conflicting item.

  2. Rename any conflicting item.

A non-conflicting item is an item which was not part of the original (or old) version of the model and also is not part of the upgrade version. Check should include the internal ID and the readable name of the item.

A conflicting item is an item

  • which was not part of the original (or old) version) but is part of the upgrade version.

  • which was part of the original version and has been modified (regardless if it conflicts with part of the upgrade version)

Conflicting items should be preserved by renaming the internal ID and the readable name so that both would not conflict with the new content. References to conflicting items do not need to be preserved. Correcting references to renamed conflicting items after repair, change of update remains responsibility of the customer.

    it would be good, if the non-conflicting customized rules could not be deleted at upgrade
