  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Customer has 2 dimension that contain the same element name
    (total)
    One of this dimensions is used to create a subset that will be
    used as approval hierarchy.
    The other dimension is used in a cube that is a source of a
    feeder.
    The Total element from non approval hierarchy dimensions  gets
    mentioned explicitly in the feeder rule
    and when we create an application based on view from this cube
    when we validate it we get an error message:
    
    Cube X contains feeders that will become invalid when this
    application is deployed to the Cognos Insight -
    Distributed client, because member A of the approval hierarchy
    dimension is referenced explicitly in the feeder.
    
    This warning is misleading as the feeder references the element
    of the same name but in a different dimension
    that is not approval hierarchy.
