Sync fails when change made in order: change formula, change to no data, delete line item

This item has been identified as an outstanding known issue. A workaround is provided until the issue is officially fixed.


ALM sync fails with below error message when change to model is applied in below order:
1. Line item "A" references Line item "B", change formula so it references Line item "C"
2. change format of Line Item "B" to no data
3. delete line item "C"


An internal error occurred while preparing the structural changes for synchronization. Reason for error: It is not permitted to change format of '<module>'.'<line_item>' to No Data because it is referenced in the formula for '<line_item>': <formula>



Change the format of culprit line item back to it's original format, sync, then change back to "No Data" and sync again.

If this workaround is not suitable in your use case, please contact Support at support@anaplan.com.
