1792214 - Added objects do not show up in Available Objects tab on some R2 migrated reports


In the Web/HTML editor, when an object is added to the Result Objects window of the query panel, the resulting report view does not show the object in the Available Objects list until the report is saved and re-opened.

Issue occurs with some WebIntelligence reports migrated from XIR2, but does not occur with new reports.

  • WebIntelligence

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Migrate WebIntelligence report from XI R2 to BI4.0
  2. In BI Launchpad set the WebI preferences as WEB.
  3. Edit the report.
  4. Add objects to the query panel.
  5. Run the report or click the "Apply Changes and Close" button
  6. The added objects are not visible in the Available Objects panel on the left side.

 This appears to only happen with migrated reports - new reports do not show the problem.
