2382186 - Promotion of Design Studio Dashboards fails with an error


  • Promotion of Design Studio (DS) Dashboards fails. The promotion jobs only indicate that they failed. 

  • This affects both live to live as well as lcmbiar import.  However It works fine for Webi reports.

  • When promoting from live to live environments , we see errors similar to below.

com.crystaldecisions.sdk.exception.SDKException$PluginNotFound: The 405 plug-in does not exist (FWM 02016).

  • When promoting from BIAR to Live – when importing the .lcmbiar file (with 1 DS dashboard document), it fails with a different error
