If you create a location and it already exists, the hierarchy path originally created remains the same. Go to Locations and enter a location that already exists. Note the hierarchy path. You will receive a message that the record already exists. Change the location name. The hierarchy path does not change. It remains with what existed before.
When entering a location that already exists, the hierarchy path remains the same when the name is changed. The issue is that the System Date field is not being correctly marked as “dirty” (modified) from user changes to correct record name conflicts. Moving forward, we resolved an issue for certain hierarchy records where the path field was not being correctly updated when correcting name conflict errors.
