Symptoms

In Oracle Financial Services Analytical Applications (OFSAA), the Search functionality in the Hierarchy Display window is not working / not usable.

According to the "OFSAA Hierarchies" Chapter, under the section "Controlling the Hierarchy Display", it states you can search for a member of the hierarchy and then see its position in the hierarchy:

When viewing search results under the Show Results heading, you may locate a
dimension member within the hierarchy by selecting it and clicking on the Focus
control. After selecting a dimension member and clicking on Focus, the application
responds by focusing on your selected member under the Show Hierarchy heading
(that is, under the normal hierarchy display).

However, when you follow the instructions, only the selected member is shown under the "Show Results" tab.  The hierarchy is not expanded, making locating the position of a member in the hierarchy impossible.  You have hierarchies with over 1,000 nodes/leaves and you need an effective Search option to locate members.
