2 Known Issues

Following are the known issues in this release of Oracle BI Mobile App Designer:

2.1 When Updating App in Apps Library, Cover Image Is Not Updated

When you publish a new version of a preexisting app in the Apps Library and add a new cover image for the app, the cover image does not get updated.

To work around this issue, delete the original app from the Apps Library and publish as a new app.

2.2 Count and Count Distinct not Supported for Non-Numeric Fields When Applying Stoplight Formatting

When applying stoplight formatting to a component if you select a Measure field that is non-numeric and you select the Count or Count Distinct Formula to apply to it, you will receive the error "Invalid parameter data type, please contact the system admin."

This issue has no workaround.

2.3 After Canceling Apps Creation, Incomplete Draft Apps Remain in the My Folders/Drafts Folder

When you cancel the App Creation process from within the Mobile App Creation wizard, a draft app remains in your My Folders/Drafts folder. These drafts display in your Recents list on the BI Home page.

To workaround this issue, manually delete the drafts in the Drafts folder.

2.4 Apps Library Published Date Reflects Server Time Zone Setting Instead of User Preference Time Zone Setting

When you view an app in the Apps Library, the published date reflects the server time zone setting and locale rather than the user's preference setting for time zone and locale. This may cause inconsistencies with the time stamps shown in the catalog for the app.

This issue has no workaround.

2.5 Parameter Type Check Box Does Not Allow Select All

Parameters that display as checkboxes do not allow the select all option.

To work around this issue, manually check all boxes when you want to select all.

2.6 Cascading Parameters Not Supported for BI Subject Area Data Sources

When you define parameters for apps that use a BI Subject Area as a data source the parameter dialog includes an option to "Refresh other parameters on change." This feature is not supported in this release.

This issue has no workaround.
