Understanding Modifying Applications

You can modify the dimensions and other settings of registered applications. The modifications you can make depend upon the application type.

You can add, remove, or update dimensions or application settings. For example, in Planning applications you can add or remove cubes. To modify specific applications, see:

When you remove a dimension or property from a registered application, the removed item's data is no longer included in exports and imports. The following table describes the considerations.

Removed Item Description
Dimension The dimension's bound viewpoint and data objects are unbound. The dimension and its data chain objects remain. The dimension's status is set to Archived.
Property in a Universal application The property is not removed from its node type.

Tip:

If you need to download the data for a removed dimension or property, download the dimension's viewpoint, see Downloading a Viewpoint.

When you remove a dimension from a registered application, that dimension's status is set to Archived. If you add a dimension in application registration with the same name as an archived dimension, that dimension will be unarchived and set to Active.

Note:

You cannot add a dimension in application registration that has the same name as an unbound dimension, even if that dimension is archived.

You can also archive and unarchive a dimension from the dimension inspector. See Archiving and Unarchiving Dimensions.
