Quick tip on how to fix activation errors with OmniStudio Calculation Procedures

What is the error?

When deploying calculation procedures you might end with an error such as:

Deploy Error :
CalculationProcedure/MarginCalculations -- DataPack >> MarginCalculations -- Error Message -- Duplicate Name Found
CalculationProcedure/ClonedMarginCalculations -- DataPack >> ClonedMarginCalculations -- Error Message -- Duplicate Name Found

The error is not clear on what we have done wrong. There is hint though that there is a duplicate name somewhere.

What is the root cause?

The cause of the problem is when you clone and existing Calculation Procedure that contains several older versions. During cloning you specify a new name for the Calculation Procedure but it also cloned the older version names.

Technically you end up with a two Calculation Procedures that contains same history versions.

What is the fix?

The fix is simple, you need to delete the old version history on the cloned calculation procedure.
