Bookmark Link on dashboards not working as expected

One can have issues with the Bookmark links on dashboards. If the user runs the report, generates the Bookmark link and shares with another user and when the recipient user tries to access the link, then the report is rendered with default prompt values.

Users have tried this on multiple dashboards and with different set of report parameters. But, it doesn't work in all cases. It fails mainly in the cases where users have hierarchical columns in the prompt and report.


When using the BookMark URL link, prompts don't retain the values. 

It has been observed that it even happens on OOTB financial analytics GL balance dashboard that comes with BI Apps. 

Tested with OBIA version   (OOTB :
Dashboards > Financials > General Ledger > GL Balance


 Users can be on latest OBIEE version or OBIEE version, this issue can happen on either version.
