Anita D'Souza. Is the first fix for this issue already in 18.3? We just upgraded our sandbox to 18.3 over the weekend (Friday), and we are seeing the following issue with our 'Accept' SFM which is impacting our training for an upcoming ServiceMax roll-out in Brazil.

Just to confirm, this caused us an issue, when we upgrade to 18.2, everything was fine in Summer 17, thankfully it was a field name to could update easily, but it did take some time to change everything in our Talend middle-ware.
Hello All and Richard Lewis
Engineering has provided the first part of a 2 stage solution to defect 43715.
An interim build ( 18.20000.33 ) was released on Friday to resolve the first issue. This is the issue you are facing on the SFM Delivery side. It will prevent the Duplicate API error that is currently occurring.
The second part of the fix to the Designer is more complex and is not yet resolved. Prior to 18.2, Custom Fields with Duplicate API Names were not displayed on the Designer. This prevented customers from selecting custom field names which would have been duplicate API names. In 18.2 and onwards, due to a change in the Salesforce API behavior, Custom Fields with Duplicate API Names where made available in the Designer.
The Designer fix will prevent the Custom Fields with Duplicate API names from being displayed. The SMAX recommendation is that you do not try to use Custom Fields with Duplicate API Names in Designer.
