In Internet Explorer 11 the action link menu is not available on a Pivot Graph legend.

These are the steps to reproduce the problem:

  1. Create a new analysis on sampleapplite.rpd:
    • Year
    • Brand
    • Revenue
  2. On Revenue select:
    • Column Properties -> Interaction -> Column Heading -> Primary Interaction -> Action Links.
    • Add an action link of type "Navigate to BI Content" and Pick a target analysis
    • Leave "Do not display in a pop-up if only one action link is available at runtime" UNchecked.
    • Click OK
  3. On the Results tab, add a Pivot table, and edit it:
    • Layout Should be:
      Columns: Year, Measure Labels
      Rows: Brand
      Measures: Revenue
    • Click "Graph Pivoted Results".
    • Click Done
  4. Save the analysis.
  5. Click on the Legend of the graph (eg 2008) and you will see a menu with the name of your action link, plus "Drill Down".
  6. Login to BIEE with IE11. Edit your analysis and repeat step 6.
    The pop-up menu will not appear.
Note: You may also see other graph issues such as reports are shrunk with horizontal scrolling, missing filter, other GUI components and graphs are not rendering.
