    like everything you can manually edit the XML file content, folder names etc, re-zip and upload.

    Not for the faint hearted but it can be done.

    Thank you.

    I was hoping there was an easier approach.

    1. create new application in on-premise with required name reflecting original application.

    2. import LCM of original application into created application in step1 above.

    3. LCM export the new application from step1.

    I have never finished the PowerShell to do this, but if you want, you can piggy back off of one I did to remove a dimension from the Migration.  The logic would be similar - rename any folder, file, or text in a file with the name you want to rename it to.  You would need to make sure you don't have a name that would reference anything else (member name, etc), so you might have to be careful with this methodology.

    1. Take LCM back up of application, calculation manager.
    2. Create a blank application on the new server or on the same server. The name of datasource could also be different.
    3. If the new application is going to be on different server, then Import the LCM taken in step 1 to the new server. If that's that same server, then you have that LCM already.
    4. Open Application; right click and then click restore.
    5. After you have clicked restore it will give a pop-up having list of all applications. Select the the newly created application and click Import.
    6. Afterwards, also import business rules.
    7. If that's a different server, then you should also import users before importing application.
