Last updated on AUGUST 08, 2016

Applies to:

Hyperion Financial Data Quality Management - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


1. Registering source and target applications, creating data load rules, defining mappings and importing data is working perfectly fine.
2. When trying to export data to the target Planning application though the export fails.
3. The HyS9aifWeb_syserr.log contains the following error:

at com.hyperion.aif.essbase.EssbaseConnection.getCube(
at com.hyperion.aif.webservices.HPLService.executeDataLoad(

4. The following error is seen in the HyS9aifWeb_sysout.log:

[HPLService] Error: java.lang.NullPointerException
[HPLService] [executeDataLoad:105] END (java.lang.NullPointerException)

5. Further up the HyS9aifWeb_sysout.log, something like the following is seen where the 'Essbase URL' contains valid connection details for Essbase and 'Application Name' is the name of your application:

[HPLService] [executeDataLoad: xxx] BEGIN
[RegistryUtil] A valid token has been retrieved.
[RegistryUtil] serverString: Oracle://server:port/sid
[RegistryUtil] A valid token has been retrieved.
Essbase URL: EssbaseServer:1423
Application could not be found: ApplicationName
