Symptoms

In Oracle Financial Services Analytical Applications (OFSAA) infrastructure, when you go to Business Metadata Management > Cubes, search for a Cube, and select a cube to view, no cube definition data is loaded to the screen.  When you enable the client-side Java Console, the following error appears in the console:

This prevents you from re-saving the cubes needed for a Profitability Analytics (PFTBI) 5.6 implementation.

You did complete the "Save Metadata" process successfully and the correct data is in the "metadata" tables used by the Cubes.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Go to Unified Metadata Manager
  2. Go to Business Metadata Management > Cubes
  3. Click Search
  4. Select any cube
  5. Click OK

After clicking Ok, nothing is loaded into the Cube screen.
