[Webi 4.x] passing hierarchy node variable prompt between reports

Hi All,

I am facing issue passing hierarchy node variable value from parent webi report to child webi report via user response function though document linking.

e.g. if I select a hierarchy node value as ABC/1234/XX in parent report, only XX is passed to child report instead of ABC/1234/XX

Both parent and child reports are on bex queries via BICS and using webi 4.1 version

Please help out in case there's a solution to this

    Have Hierarchy variable in both Parent and child report and pass variable value thru a document linking in parent to child report.

      Hi Jyothi,

      Thanks for your reply.

      I tried passing hierarchy variable to child report. When document link is clicked in parent report, below error message pops up. Infoobject having hierarchy is not authorization relevant and I am able to run both reports individually without error. I face this issue only when document linking is done with hierarchy variable.

      Any idea how to overcome this?

      btw, I am only using hierarchy node in prompt and note in report table.
