JSON:Using dimensionUniqueName breaks report if mapping object in wrong order

Answered
Lauri Mäntysaari asked on April 6, 2020

Hi,
Hierarchical data seems to break if you use same `dimensionUniqueName` on hierarchical value and non hierarchical value, depending on which appears first in defining JSON-object.

2 fiddles to demonstrate the issue:
https://jsfiddle.net/s4ht2qpn/ this works (“Folder” appears in fields view and hierarchical value is working)

But if I re-order the JSON to define string-type after level-type
https://jsfiddle.net/bq8kgf5w/ now “Folder” is gone and hierarchy level2 is gone.
