1754807 - When a Webi report is based off of a BEx query that has a shared variable that has LOVs, if the shared variable is changed then the LOVs don't get returned.


  • A Web Intelligence reported is created based on a BEx query (using the BICS connector).
  • The BEx query has a shared variable to restrict values that is based on a List of Values.
  • If the BEx query is modified so that it has a new shared variable (with a new technical name), then when the Webi report is refreshed and the List of Values for the shared variable prompt are refreshed, no values are returned.
