Hi, Good Day
My team has an implementation of FDM and Hyperion Planning ver 11.1.2. We are basically using FMD because we need a place to maintain (user friendly) different mapping tables for the accounts dimensions, to be able to load data.
My questions are; when loading data, do we need to always map all the dimensions? Is there a way to avoid it?
For example in the model we have 300 accounts, 20 entities and 400 products. We need to map the accounts since they are different for all the entities (in the source data), however not the products. Therefore I want to avoid mapping the products (and maintaining this mapping) when loading the data. Is this feasible? Any ideas?
Any dimension you have active in FDM i.e. constitutes part of the target reference for data you want to load has to be mapped. If your products don't need any transformation during the mapping process i.e. they are one to one simply use a 'pass-thru map' i.e a wildcard Like map with * as the source and * as the target.
