(Doc ID 848608.1)

Applies to:

Hyperion BI+ - Version: 9.3.1.2.00 to 11.1.1.3.502 - Release: 9.3 to 11.1
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

After upgrading from 9.3.0 to 9.3.1, smartcuts that run SQR with parameters are not working generating the error message "Failed to run job".

The following error is captured in the BrowseServlet.log:
<message><![CDATA[outputErrorMessage]]></message>
<throwable><![CDATA[java.lang.NullPointerException
at com.brio.one.web.browser.command.CmdExecSQR.executeWithoutOutputPersistence(Unknown Source)

Example of smartcut being used:

http://brio/workspace/browse/run/SQR/testfolder/testreport?.pdf&user=pr&pass=Product-Reporting&Param_1=FR&Param_2=4666&Param_3=01/06/2009&Param_4=1

If the "Param" parameters are removed from the URL, the modified URL launches the job correctly.
