I was syncing some changes from Prod to Dev and I realized the presence of some changes neither i did, nor did I find anyone else in history making it. Here is a screenshot from the comparison report:
This seemed like an inconsequential change so I moved it to prod, later realizing that this changed the current period for the model. I don't understand the meaning of the screenshot or why would current period change due to sync.
Looks like the labels for the time settings were changed. The quarter prefix and that half year prefix etc. When the label is changed, the change definitely shows up in history with the description "Change Time Scale"
ALM syncs do not affect the current period in the deployed model. The current period is production data
@anirudh That is my understanding as well that the changes shouldn't be connected. However, history report shows that this happened after I started syncing the changes and before I finished it which is peculiar since I can't make changes while syncing!
This is interesting, but it seems like this might be part of the enhancement that was released this past weekend that allowed you to change the labeling of time periods. It looks like it went from being blank to having a pre-defined letter in there. I just ran the same simulation on a test model and got the same exact results.
In my test, I also made no changes to the time scale, and saw the exact same notes in my comparison
I have tried this in two separate test models and gotten the same results both times, so I have to believe that it is going to display this as a change the first time every model is sync'd following the release this past weekend.
I also ran a test to sync a second time, and did not get this listed as a change and it displayed as expected without this time change.
