Hierarchy Node Variable LOV show technical names

Hi all,

I have created a universe in UDT connecting to BEx query that has a hierarchy node variable. When I create a webi on this universe, the prompt for hierarchy node variable (from BEx query) shows LOV with technical name.

If I connect to same BEx query usine BICS and then create WEBi, the LOV shows description as expected. But because of some other issue, I need to use universe.

How do I get it to show description instead of technical name?

Thank a bunch

    I made change to properties of dimension in BEx. For Display As, changed it from stadard to Text | Medium text.

    Still the technical names shows up in LOV.

    • Hi,

      The BEx properties are not really used via MDX interface. See Note 820925 - MDX Restrictions

      It could also be that the object's master data texts are not translated in the master data tables for your connection's logon language.
