I have two issues in Design Studio

1.Expand All Hierarchy in Crosstab

I have hierarchy in crosstab in Design studio 1.6 SP3 Patch1. I want to expand all hierarchy and I'm able to do so in local mode however when trying to click on option "Expand All" in BI Launchpad nothing is happening. When I manually click on plus button it works. Checked both in IE 11 & Chrome, behavior is same.

2.Bookmarks deleted when deploying application from Dev to Prod

If users saves any bookmarks and we make changes in DS application,then deploy to production. Saved bookmarks gets deleted. Any solution?

BO version: BI 4.1 SP5 P5

DS Version: 1.6 SP3 P1

Please let me know your views.

On #2, please see SAP Note about bookmarks:


On #1, is your data source BEx? How did the application upload to the BI platform?

Mantu - did you review the SAP Note I listed above?


Yes. I will use PortableFragmentBookmark. What about my first query,any thought?


Any update Tammy for issue related to expand hierarchy option?


Mantu - please understand that I and others volunteer our time to help on the community

I do not experience similar behavior as yours; my only thought is that you are on an old version of BI4.1 and if you could patch up or go to BI4.2
