2058561 - Hierarchy ID is Shown in a Hierarchy Node Variable Replaced by Authorization


  • A query is using a hierarchy. This hierarchy is once activated with multiple root nodes and ‘suppress unassigned node’ option ticked.
  • The hierarchy now may already be changed to single root node with 'suppress unassigned node' switch off.
  • The query also uses a hierarchy node variable replaced by authorization based on this hierarchy.  This variable is somehow set as mandatory and inputable.
  • If a user with full authorization runs this query, the variable is filled with hierarchy ID (HIEID) value.
