I've set a certain report parameter, the department based on the user name, in the session using the usual xaction-run-at-login mechanism. In the xaction file for the report the variable is then retrieved from the session and handed to the BIRT report component. However, the user is still prompted for this value. How do I avoid this behaviour? The user should not be able to set this value himself. Fortunately the value from the request is then ignored and the value from the session is used in the report generation.

Also, the prompt text from my BIRT report definition is not displayed only the help text.
