    * stands for mandatory prompt. As you said if the report also works even if the prompts is kept blank then the * is mentioned in the "Prompt text". Also check if there is any defaut value assigned to the prompt or not?

    Also these reports are created at the universe level or at the report level?

    Hello Vinay,

    Did you saved the universe and exported it back to repository?

    Also try to leave one of the prompt unanswered and execute the report.

    Regards

    Meaning it is a mandatory prompt, meaning it needs a value

    Hi Vinay,

    Are these universe level predefined filters or prompts created in report query filter?

    - If these are universe level prompts, you need to check the prompt text in universe? (i.e @prompt definition)

    - If the prompts are created in webi report query filter, then this should not happen, kindly confirm if there is any difference in HTML Vs Applet mode.

    - Star mark should go away if you check the option 'Optional Prompts' in prompt properties in query filter.

    - If the issue is only with one report, you may need to re-mapp the report to same universe again and see if it helps.

    Regards,
