  • The OLAP universe is based on BW BEx query
  • After the universe is generated, the BEx query is changed to use different hierarchy on one dimension, which is restricted by a hierarchy node varaible.
  • Refresh structure on the universe, the dimension using the hierarchy cannot bring back the correct definition for the hierarchy levels, it's still using the old heirarchy.
  • Create a new universe does return correct definition of the dimension.
