(Variation) Access driver error when attempting ALM sync

This item has been identified as a known issue, please contact Support at support@anaplan.com if you encounter this.

A workaround is provided until the issue is officially fixed.

Error received when attempting an ALM sync:

An internal error occurred while preparing the 
structural changes for synchronization.
Reason for error: To serve as an access driver,
a line item must be formatted as a Boolean.

The error is thrown if the following changes are made in the same sync:

  • Set a line item to Boolean format and add a formula - to be used as a DCA driver line item
  • Set the read/write access of another line item to be the DCA driver line item
  • Add a formula to the line item that is driven by DCA

For the DCA driver line item, please follow these steps:

  1. Remove the formula
  2. Create a revision tag and sync
  3. Re-add the formula
  4. Create a revision tag and sync
