In an Oracle Commerce Guided Search / Experience Manager 11.2 application using Forge and Developer Studio, when trying to load and view autogenerated dimension values, an error is received.

  5. Click Load at the top of the window

There are no significant changes.

This may occur after a migration to 11.2, or in a freshly deployed Forge-based Discover application on 11.2
