Rules replicating itself

Post by kaazimraza » Thu Sep 12, 2019 10:22 am

Hi everyone,

I am on Planning Analytics Local, 2.04, and use Architect. I ran into a weird scenario yesterday where rules in one of my TM1 cubes replicated themselves. My rules looked like below;

Code: Select all

#create date
#notes

skipcheck;
feedstrings;

rule 1 ;
rule 2 ;
rule 3 ;

feeders;
feeder for rule 1 ;
feeder for rule 2 ;
feeder for 3 ;
#external feeder ;
feeder feeding some other cube


#create date
#notes

skipcheck;
feedstrings;

rule 1 ;
rule 2 ;
rule 3 ;

feeders;
feeder for rule 1 ;
feeder for rule 2 ;
feeder for 3 ;
#external feeder ;
feeder feeding some other cube
I banged my head for most most the day and then found out my rules were structured like above. I have seen this behavior once, about 4 or 5 years ago in TM1 10.1.1. On both occasions, the solution was to have just one block of rules.

I was wondering if anyone else has seen this kind of behavior.

Thanks

So, what is the structure you normally have, which leads to the structure that we see in your post ?
I would add notes after the initial statements of feedstrings, skipcheck, ... Nothing on top of these initial statements.

Then I would put the notes below, after Skipcheck.

Sure, I see you want skipcheck and feedstrings to be the first statements to avoid any doubts.

But this was an odd scenario.
Thanks,
