Reproducing the Issue

Below is one example:

in your APP ,you have some charts. On each chart, a separate filter line is defined, which allows selections for specific Dimensions. After you change the selection in the filter line, an error saying the "'dimension' doesn't exist" occurs. But the dimension do exist.


For the Charts, you set the option "Always Pause" in Builder -> Properties ->Data Refresh, which stops meta data refreshing after setting filter values. 


1, Set the "refresh active widgets only" in Data Refresh for the charts.

2,Add the sentence "DS.setRefreshPause(false)" to enable the refreshing for the operation.
