Symptoms

BI Publisher ignores user language preference for '_xl=' parameter passed in the url and uses browser locale first time when running report. But, when refreshing the browser window, it honors the BIP user profile language.

Because of this behavior, BIP reports in JD Edwards Enterprise One get "Error 500 : Internal Server Error" for its first time run if they use Internet Explorer on non English locale windows machine.
This is described in Document:1983785.1.
