Report Builder Error: There are multiple properties (different IDs) that have the same name

Ngan Nguyen Kim (131) | asked May 23 '22, 5:08 a.m.
Hello team,
When create a report via RS, using "Add attributes to the report", there are errors (for all custom attributes that I had created) saying: There are multiple properties (different IDs) that have the same name.

I have been trying to research this error, any clue for resolving this?
Many thanks for your support,

I think these are displayed as warnings rather than errors.
The link Fariz provided above didn't work for me. I think the extra trailing '.' is the problem.
Here is the corrected link:

Consider the following use case. In some application, you have defined the following properties:
Since these two properties have different RDF URIs, they are not semantically equivalent, and are likely to represent different data and usage.In other words, you have two semantically different properties both named "Priority".
You can still report on either or both properties in Report Builder. However, your type system is now confusing because these properties potentially have different meaning and usage but have the same name. Hence the warnings in Report Builder.
