When you use prompts to filter the results of embedded parameterized BI Publisher(BIP) reports on a BIEE dashboard page, the report is not filtered.
The issue reproduces when the prompt is numerical type; when the prompt is string, the report can be filtered as expected.
In the following screen shot, there are dashboard prompt and a BI Publisher report on a dashboard. Try to filter using the prompt: Product Number = 4.
When the prompt is string type, the report can be filtered. Ex) Product = "MPEG4 Camcorder"
This issue occurs when all of the following conditions are met:
- Use BI Publisher report that uses a subject area as a data source.
- Add parameter for BI Publisher report.
- Use a dashboard and dashboard prompt to filter.
- Use numeric for the prompt.
