(Doc ID 2194531.1)

Last updated on MARCH 19, 2018

Applies to:

Hyperion Planning - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On : version, PBCS


When trying to connect to PBCS from Smart View in Excel, unable to connect to the cloud instance and see the server name listed, but the line where the applications should be listed we see a blank.

We also get the error “Argument sId in the request is an empty string or NULL”.

Should be able to see the applications in Smart View.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Open Smart View and connect to the Planning application.
2. Cannot see the apps
