Applies to:

Business Intelligence Server Enterprise Edition - Version 12.2.1.3.181016 and later

Symptoms

You are trying to use the Baseline Validation Tool (BVT) to do regression testing between OBIEE 12.2.1.3.0 and 12.2.1.4.0.
Using the "Comparing Oracle Business Intelligence Deployments Using the Oracle Business Intelligence Baseline Validation Tool" PDF file that comes with version 18.1.10 of the tool.
You are using the DashboardPrompts.txt when running BVT.

The RPD and catalog are the same on the two servers and visually inspecting the different dashboards everything looks fine.
BVT runs, but the majority of the prompted dashboard URLs do not work, throwing one of two errors:

- Error 1: "Failed to decode provided link. Reason: null".
- Error 2: "Error handling prompted dashboard page. Skipping page".
