Symptoms

You have installed OBIEE 11.1.1.7.1. You have set up multi-lingual localizing metadata names in the repository as described in section 15.5 - Localizing Metadata Names in the Repository - of the Oracle® Fusion Middleware System Administrator's Guide for Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition 11g Release 1 (11.1.1) Part Number E10541-05.  The column name is correctly translated in the result table column headings and in the subject area list of column names when you log in as a user associated with a specific language. However dashboard column prompt labels are not translated, leaving the label name blank in the edit prompt configuration.

As a fix for <bug 16779536>, you had added the following parameter to the InstanceConfig.xml file:

<ServerInstance>
...
<Prompts>
        <AutoPopulatePromptLabels>true</AutoPopulatePromptLabels>
</Prompts>
...
</ServerInstance>
