Accessing to defined metatada values in base and variant reports

Hello,

I have defined a metadata key (metadataTest) in a base report and setting to 'base value'  as value.

I have defined the same key (metadataTest) in a variant of the mentioned base report and I have set metadata in definition as 'variant value'.

Query is like thois:

select ${_RS_METADATA_SUPER_metadataTest} C_BASE,
${_RS_METADATA_metadataTest} C_VARIANT
from dual where rownum=1

Now, I run the VARIANT and I get this

C_BASE       C_VARIANT
-------------------------
base_value    base_value

As far as I have understood, second attribute should output the data stored in VARIANT i.e. 'variant value' but it is showing the BASE data value.

Could you please assist ?

Regards

Alfredo

PS: Using 3.0.3 CE

Re: Accessing to defined metatada values in base and variant reports

Hi Alfredo,

I don't quite get what you are trying to do. Why did you set the same key for two different reports (the base report and the variant)? This seems not correct. Each report ( and variant ) should have a unique key defined. Or what do you mean with "metadata key"? Could you post some screenshots ?

Regards,
Eduardo

Re: Accessing to defined metatada values in base and variant reports

Hi Alfredo,

I suppose you use patch 6001, can you please confirm?

* In patch 6001 you have the behavior you observe while executing the base report: you get NULL for your _RS_METADATA_md_report_variant column.
* In patch 6002 you should get an error while executing the base report: "Cannot find property _RS_METADATA_md_report_variant". This happens since in this version we throw an error if a property is not being found (a more strict behavior).

I corrected the bug you sent in this thread. The problem was that the variant only contained _RS_METADATA_md_report_base. That's why you are getting a NULL in _RS_METADATA_md_report_variant when executing the variant.
This will be included into the next patch: 6003.
So in patch 6003 the behavior will be:

* If you execute the base report, you get an error: "Cannot find property _RS_METADATA_md_report_variant". This is correct, since in the base report you don't have this property. You can of course add to the base report md_report_variant with an empty value. Then you will not get this error.
* If you execute the variant, you will get both columns: _RS_METADATA_md_report_base and _RS_METADATA_md_report_variant.

Regards,
Eduardo

Re: Accessing to defined metatada values in base and variant reports

Hi Alfredo,

ok, the behavior in 6000 and 6001 is the same with respect to this, so it makes sense.
