1710381 - When refreshing a Web Intelligence report, the prompts do not show all the values of a BEx Query prompt if the number of values exceeds the batch size (1000 by default)


  • List of Values not “chunking” in Web Intelligence reports based on BICS with BEx Query LOV in Web Viewer, only first batch of values are displayed 
  • When refreshing the WebI report, the prompts do not show all the list of values
  • Users can still search and find the desired value and reports run fine

Some background information:

  • WebI "chunks" based on the batch size set in the Web Intelligence Processing Server properties, it is set to 1000 by default
  • The batch size only limits how large each section of LOVs is displayed, not the total number of values
  • If there are 5000 values, then 5 batches of 1000 are displayed in the prompt member selector
