Prevent users from creating duplicate fields in multiple field groups within same OpenPages object type

Allowing users to create duplicate field name in multiple field groups of the same object type leads to errors in Cognos reports that use the duplicate fields, unless the Cognos reports are updated to reference the auto-renamed fields.

When Reporting Framework is generated from OpenPages UI, duplicate fields found are renamed from FieldName to FieldName00... FieldName01....

Reports that reference the original FieldName will have errors unless they are updated to use the newly auto-renamed fields.

OpenPages release 9.0 introduced a change to prevent the user from entering duplicate “enum values names” in an enumeration field. Can a similar change be applied in this case?
