Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a Public Account Dimension, “Public_Dim"
    • Add a member ID and populate its description and/or dimension property.
  2. Create a Model that uses "Public_Dim".
    • Notice "Public_Dim" descriptions or properties are in italics. This indicates they have been inherited from the Public Dimension.
  3. Override an italicized cell by repopulating the cell.
  4. Export the Model and all its dependencies (including “Public_Dim") via ".package" or ".tgz"
  5. Import the ".package" or ".tgz" onto a different tenant
  6. Notice any overwritten public dimension cells will not be transferred.
