Web Intelligence Prompt splitted - DFX Prompt

Hello All,

I've created a prompt inside Dfx level.

The same prompt is attached to 2 tables in the universe.

I have a Webi report with 2 queries, both of them should get the prompt (technically it's the same prompt, so merge is expected)

Until the change, all prompts where merged between queries.

Since the change, all of the prompts are split.



Is there any way to merge the prompts and still use DFX-level prompt?

We needed to take some filter from the DB level (HANA) into the user selection upon refresh, so instead of filtering the HANA view, we replaced it with DFX prompt. If anybody have another suggestion for this, please tell me.

Using 4.1 SP04 over HANA (Rev 85)


I've saw Note 2053946 (

it states that it is BY DESIGN behavior. My question is what is the workaround or was the issue fixed on 4.2 ?

    Are you trying to merge the prompt from Universe with the prompts coming directly from Hana views?

    • In the Document Summary can you see if the Merge option is checked or not? See checking it would make any difference?

      Also, can you make sure the prompt text for both the prompts are same?

      You said this happened after you made a change to the report, was it a report level change or query level?
