Creating Prompts for Timestamp Fields in BAM (Doc ID 1664636.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 18, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle BAM (Business Activity Monitoring) - Version 11.1.1.7.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Creating a report where you want to group fields using the timestamp field and provide the user with a prompt to select a date range (from date & to date)

The prompt can be created but the filters are unavailable.  If any other parameter is used (other than a timestamp) it can be configured correctly. 

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1.Log into the Vcap machine:http://celvpint5310.us.oracle.com:9001/OracleBAM/17584/default.htm (weblogic/welcome1)
2.After logging in go to Active Studio, select report1
3.Once on the report click edit
4. On the edit screen click Change Report Properties
5. We will see 4 prompts that are created. 2 for Datetime Parameter and 2 for other parameters.
6.Close the current window
7.Again on the edit screen, click Edit View
8.On the screen, go to filter
9.Check the filter expression, if the parameter selected is anything other than time stamp you will see the "options" button at the end. It would let select the prompt that we have created. If we select timestamp as the parameter, it won't let us use the prompts.
