Duplicate item Templates when applying dimensions

    Hi All

    Prepping for Go Live and making final changes.

    We have setup item templates without dimensions and now want to apply dimensions

    I opened an existing template (yellow), added two dimensions and afterwards, I had 3 templates. Each of the two new ones (purple) has nothing but a single dimension.

    The new ones do not show up in the template list when create a new item.

    Anyone know why?

    Also, I'm curious about

    1. How the system knows not to show the new ones (I assume it's because they are for table 352 and not 27)?
    2. How does the system know to apply the two new ones to an item?


    There also seems to be a bug in this. If I delete an item template, it deletes the linked dimension set templates and then all the other item templates are broken (if you try to edit one, it says the template with code 0000000001 cannot be found





    Thanks

    Mark

    Mark,

    The "extra" templates are related templates created for the Item Configuration Template you created. If you look at the Item Configuration Template you created, you will see these "extra" templates listed there.
    Item Config Template
    If you add Table ID and Table Name to your Configuration Template list page, you will see that your extra templates relate to the Default Dimension table. These will not be included in your Config Template List for Items. Only Item Table templates will be in this list.

    If you assign one of these Default Dimension templates on another template, it may cause the issues you describe if you delete the template that created them. I have not tested this, so can't say for certain.
