Symptoms

Some Dashboards for Financial Analytics have some prompts at the top. One of them is for "Fiscal Year". It shows a default value of "2008". That is wrong.

Fiscal Year prompt has default value set to variable CURRENT_FSCL_YEAR. This is from an initialization block variable. Opened the initialization block and changed the query to get actual desired results (Edit Data Source) and yet, the defaults still are set to the same wrong value.

How to fix the defaults?
