Symptoms

In OBIEE 11.1.1.7.1, you have a dashboard using dashboard prompts which populate presentation variables. The dashboard includes pages with embedded BI Publisher Reports.
When you open the reports you get the following error:

But these are valid parameter values. If you open the report from the catalog and use the same parameter values, it works fine.
Having done so, the report now opens without error in the dashboard.
