Exalytics: Hyperion Planning Data Form - Entity Page Dropdown @IANCESTORS Function Does Not Reflect Correct Results

(Doc ID 1675737.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 06, 2015

Applies to:

Oracle Exalytics Software - Version and later
Hyperion Planning - Version to [Release 11.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When using Hyperion Planning on Exalytics, the Entity Page drop down on one of the forms looks at the parent members of a level 0 entity using the @IANCESTORS function.
When going into the form and selecting the level 0 Entity, the results are as expected. However, when selecting the parent member of that level 0 member, the results are incorrect.

If the drop down is edited and the parent and level 0 members ONLY are selected, and then navigate back to the form, the results are correct.
Even when using the @CHILDREN or @IDESCENDANTS functions, the results return correct as well. It only becomes a problem when using the @IANCESTORS or @PARENT functions.
