Thread: Parameter Auto-fill in Report Designer

  1. #1

    Default Parameter Auto-fill in Report Designer

    I have a user who would not like to see data auto-filled in the report parameters she enters. I thought this was a browser issue; however I made sure that all of the auto-fill options are turned off in the browser. The parameters still auto-fill for a string type parameter that uses the Text Box display type. I am using report designer version 3.8.1-GA 14286.

    Does anyone know if there is any way in report designer to turn this feature off?

    Did you set a default value for the parameter? If so, then we will pre-populate the parameter with that value (assuming the value is actually valid, of course).

    We do not have any other logic in there, and there is no logic in the BI-Server to remember previous values. So if you see parameter values show up when there is no default value defined for that parameter, then you are most likely victim of your browser. Check how other browsers are acting - if only that browser and that user is affected, you have a case of "user configured bug".
