If you notice “Data Source Configuration conflict detected” error in problems view upon opening a template in RPE studio, you should fix it immediately to avoid undesired results. The document generation might go through successfully for some case. However, for some cases the document generation could fail as well.
The data source configuration conflict happens when you use a schema normally and then use the same schema to configure the DSC element as in the below screen capture.
How to fix the conflict
Duplicate the conflicting schema either by using “Duplicate Schema” option from the outline. If the duplicate option is not available, go through the normal Add Schema operation to add the schema with a different name again.
Once the schema is duplicated as _resources (or any unique name), use this schema to configure the DSC element and make sure to configure rest of the properties like URL, inherited data source, etc for the DSC element as earlier.
After you fix the issue, re-opening the same template should NOT result in “Data Source Configuration conflict detected” in the problems view.
