Information in this document applies to any platform.
With Oracle BI Applications (BI Apps) 126.96.36.199.x on OBIEE 188.8.131.52.x:-
1. The PREFERRED_CURRENCY session variable is populated with a value of 'Document Currency' via an Init Block in the RPD.
2. A Dashboard Prompt has a Variable Prompt for Request Variable = PREFERRED_CURRENCY. The prompt gives a Choice List of 3 Custom Values ('Global Currency 1', 'Document Currency' and 'Local Currency') and has a Default Value set to the Specific Value of 'Global Currency 1'.
3. When a user navigates to a (custom) Dashboard with the Dashboard Prompt, the Variable Prompt shows the Default Value of 'Global Currency 1' and the reports return results quickly.
After migrating to Oracle Analytics Cloud (OAC):-
1. When the user navigates to the (custom) Dashboard, the reports run for a long time and returns unexpected results, due to the Variable Prompt has no Default Value.
2. This issue is only encountered when the Variable Prompt is for Request Variable = PREFERRED_CURRENCY; if another (non-system) Session Variable is specified then the prompt shows the Default Value as expected.
