Creating a Copy of a Semantic GroupLocate this document in the navigation structure

You can save a semantic group under a different name in order to create a copy of it.


When these are copied, a new group is created. This has the same number of partitions with the same criteria. All DataStore objects (advanced) are created again based on the reference structure. The names of the components are created automatically when copied, and can be changed before generating.


  1. You are in the BW Modeling tools. In the Project Explorer, choose Copy from the context menu on your semantic group.
  2. Give the new object a name and a description.
  3. Choose Finish. The new semantic group is opened in the editor and can be edited there.
