APEX Advisor Errors With Occur Within All Applications Using The Universal Theme

(Doc ID 2127180.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 20, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Application Express (formerly HTML DB) - Version 5.0.3.00.03 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

When running the Application Advisor in APEX 5.0.3, a few items are reported that imply issues with Universal Theme Report Templates.

STEPS TO REPRODUCE
==================
1) Create a new application using the Universal Theme. (Options were selected to get the default Login and Home pages.)

2) Run Utilities -> Advisor, choosing all "Checks to Perform."

3) Seemingly spurious items are reported, even for an "out of the box" new application using the Universal Theme, even though no customizations were made to the default pages created by the Create Application Wizard, and no user-defined pages were added to the application.

ERROR PATTERN
===========
  Applications -> [app number - app name] -> Themes -> Universal Theme -> Report Templates -> Search Results

  Attribute: Col Template ConditionX (Optionally select a condition type that must be met in order to apply this column template)

  Check: References with Bind Variable Syntax

  Category: Error

  Message: LABEL_XX does not exist.

  Value: LABEL_XX is null

The Advisor entries also include a similar reference for EVENT_LINK instead of LABEL_XX, with the same Message and Value.
