Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a Dashboard with Scenario button.
  2. Run the Dashboard in BOE.
  3. Create a Scenario and save it.
  4. Exit out of Dashboard.
  5. Go to IE Internet Option and delete all the cookies.
  6. Run the dashboard again.
  7. All the saved Scenarios are deleted.


This is By Design.

The local scenario data was stored in the default directory as below:

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects\48844BZE\aurora-boe\3418089054-05840-04580-136-035-133195143054048039.sol

After deleting cookies, all the data, under #SharedObjects, gets deleted.
