Reproducing the Issue

5. An error message appears


This may be caused due to incorrect configuration of the matrix1placement or matrix2placement portlets in the Succession Data Model.

Example: The data-field "xAxisStartDate" should be configured with field-name "dfld1", however you have configured it as "vfld4".


Check the configuration of the matrix1placement or matrix2placement portlets in the Succession Data Model against the supported code provided in the Wiki article below or use the default configuration mentioned in the Admin Guide.

WikiMatrix Grid Reports - Matrix Grid Placement History portlets

Note: If there is no issue with creating the report but still issues with importing the report, you should verify all field configuration in the Succession Data Model and the Position Object are the same.
