To ensure that the selection of hierarchies is transferred when you transport an InfoPackage into the target BI system, you have to take into account the special considerations for transporting hierarchy InfoPackages.
When you import a hierarchy InfoPackage into the target system, the system checks whether the selected hierarchy is in tables RSOSOHIE and RSOSOHIET. If the entries in the target BI system do not match the source BI system, the target BI system deletes the hierarchy selection for the InfoPackage.
You proceed as follows:
1. Transport a hierarchy InfoPackage for the relevant DataSource into the target BI system. The selections are not transferred because entries for this DataSource do not exist in tables RSOSOHIE and RSOSOHIET.
2. In the target BI system, go to the scheduler. Under Available Hierarchies from OLTP, refresh the table containing the selected hierarchies.
3. Select the Relevant for BW option for each hierarchy that you want to load later using the InfoPackage.
4. Now transport the hierarchy InfoPackage. The selections are retained if the hierarchies have exactly the same name in the target BI as in the source BI.
