2441687 - WFA - Overriding analysis/hierarchy categories as opposed to titles

Symptom

Dimension Override only changes the title and description of a dimension.  Is it possible to rename categories within the dimension?

Environment

SAP SuccessFactors Workforce Analytics

Resolution

Renaming the categories directly is done with a request to Cloud Consulting and will take some development work.  You can instead create a Custom Member or Custom Set with the name of your choice which is equivalent to the original.

In Query Workspace, click Edit -> Edit Custom Measures/Dimensions.  Create a custom set or custom member which contains only the category you wish to rename, from the relevant analysis option or structural dimension (e.g. Org Unit).  Utilize this custom element in your queries, in Query Workspace and Report Designer, after locating it in the Special Functions section of the dimension menu in the query editor.  

Your queries may be a little more complex as a result but a custom set/member containing only one category will behave just like that category.  To clarify, there is no difference between custom sets and custom members that contain only one item.
