What are the API changes for forecast rollups?

Knowledge Article Number 000214131
Description ForecastingOwnerAdjustment objects each include a new field: ForecastingItemCategory. This field indicates which type of forecast rollup the forecasting item or adjustment belongs to. With the addition of the Cumulative Forecast Rollups feature, you have these possible values for the ForecastingItemCategory field. 
Resolution The ForecastingItemCategory field differs from the existing ForecastCategoryName field.
  • The ForecastCategoryName field represents the forecast category of the underlying opportunities rolling up to forecast amounts. In organizations using Cumulative Forecast Rollups, the ForecastCategoryName field can be null because the cumulative forecast amounts include opportunities from multiple forecast categories.
  • The new ForecastingItemCategory field represents the type of rollup a forecast amount or adjustment is from. In organizations using individual forecast category columns, it contains the individual forecast rollup categories.
In organizations using Cumulative Forecast Rollups, it contains the cumulative rollup categories. When inserting manager or owner adjustments, the values you insert for ForecastCategoryName and ForecastingItemCategory must be compatible with each other. In organizations using Cumulative Forecast Rollups, the ForecastCategoryName is nullable.
