Duplicate Member Names and Aliases

No indication that Duplicate Member Names and Aliases options is on by default


Hi EPRCS Team,

When deploying our first set of metadata to ERPCS, we didn't get a warning or error for uniqueness due to Duplicate Aliases and Member Names being turned on. The only reason I found out that the option was enabled was because Smart View started throwing errors that I had to use Qualified Names due to duplicates.

I can understand the rationale for enabling the Duplicate option out of the box but it's very very unclear as to what other Essbase ASO options / settings have been enabled or disabled. It would be very helpful to have the documentation updated to reflect the out of the box options. I'd also like to put forward having these displayed directly in the Web Interface. Perhaps directly under the "Created On" label.

Howdy, Stranger!
