Last updated on FEBRUARY 09, 2017

Applies to:

Business Intelligence Server Enterprise Edition - Version 11.1.1.7.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

A user logs into /analytics and goes to New > Analysis and sees a list of Subject Areas.  She can also successfully execute existing reports (Analyses) that are built on those same Subject Areas.

In MS Excel > Smart View, the user can successfully execute those same reports (Analyses).  However, if she invokes the View Designer in Smart View (for example, click on Catalog Root > Create New View), then the Subject Areas are not visible / listed.  The left pane in the View Designer is "empty" and even the "[+] Subject Areas" heading is not visible.
