WebI rich Client Web Service - Prompts value not working

Hi all,

I'm testing Xcelsius with a "WebI Rich Client Table" Web Service.

My WebI Rich Client report has prompts values

I've set-up all those prompt in my Xcelsius but the web service response is still the same, my prompts are not applied.

I think the return values are always the first i run, when i build the report.

I use Fiddler to see informations sent to the web service -->

In the web request : all is ok, my prompts values are good.

In the web response : no data change

Do you have an idea ?

Thx

JC

    Hi JC,

    WebI web service had an issue with prompts, which was fixed with FP3, ensure you have applied the most recent patch level, as this issue is typical of the XI 3.1 SP2 limitation.

    Ensure also that input parameter refresh is correctly set to true so document is actually refresh upon web service invocation.

    Hope that helps,

    David.

    I run a sniffer to determine if the problem comes from the networking area and I see that both web services the one that return data

    And the one that apparently does not return data both rich the BO server and back successfully

    both actions create tcp connection exactlly the same way

    Hi

    after investigating a bit more on the following issues i think i know what the problem is and if so i hope everyone can benefit

    form it

    after cheking the report that the web service is built on comparing it to the xcelsius

    i saw that only the ws built on the first query in the webi report was working

    when i created a new report with the same ws but not as part of a muli query report it worked

    another problem i had is a prompt value that did not work and i think i know why:

    i have a person id that defined as integer in the db and also in the universe and indeed in the webi report i see

    it as a number but comming to xcelsius through web service i get the same number devided by a very large number

    for example: webi number=4824942 xcelsius number= 4.824942e6 which means that somthing happened to the numer

    while creating the ws and that is why the prompt value did not work because it expects to get the devided number

    is that a known problem ?

    any solution for it ?

      Hi all,

      i've made another test.

      A prompt for a number value --> error

      A prompt for an string value --> OK

      A new fp ?
