2108332 - "Invalid Member" warning message in EPM Add-in


  • When a user opens up the Input Schedule via hyperlink from BPF, he receives an EPM warning message stating an invalid member for Business entity: 2009.
  • Report was previously saved with Business 2009 selected.
  • User only had authorization for Business entity 4742. If user does not have authorization for that Business entity, user will receive this warning message.
  • It was expected that the report will refresh with the Business context 4742 which was passed from BPF. However, EPM seems to read the Entity parameter that was saved previously.
