Java.lang.NullPointerException in dashboard with BIWS


Hello Experts,

I have a dashboard with 12 Query as a Web Service connections (via BIWS). In the WSDL URL, GetReportBlockMethod, I have enabled filters (e.g.. State) to be passed. So in the input values section, I have assigned value to cell F3 and Operator is =

At any point of time, cell F3 may have a value, if not it will be blank. When I preview the dashboard, cell F3 will be blank, until the user selects a state and that is when cell F3 gets populated..Similar to this, I have another 5 fillter values that can be a blank or not a blank.

When I preview the dashboard, I run into the below pop up message which is annoying, although the data rendered is correct.

Is there anyway I can suppress this popup or how can I avoid it?

Thanks in advance,
