SSAS : Make the ObjectID and the ObjectName the same

Topics: Resolved

When I add an object to the SSAS solution the ObjectID is usually the same as the ObjectName. But when you rename the object, it will ask if it should change the ObjectName as well.
If you click yes, the ObjectName is renamed but the the ObjectID not.
When you do a deployment, you still get the Old name back.

Ofcourse you could delete and add the object but you loose all the stuff you already did. And if you dive into the code (with view code), you have to changes things in other files as well.

Thanks for your suggestion, we actually have a request for this in the issue log already here:
I've done some work around this issue, but unfortunately it's not an easy issue to solve.and I don't have a full solution at this time.

It sounds like the issue you are facing is mainly around the database objectID. There are a couple of issues surrounding this which I have discussed in this blog post, reading this may help.
