WebService doesn't use PromptValue on [EMPTY] values


I'm developping in a jsp page scheduling a job on a Business Objects Enterpise server XI R2 SP4.

The report has a parameter, which must be modified with a given value:

The problem arrives if the parameter of my report has no default value set thru the CMC: no matter the value I'll give, the report scheduling will occur in a failed report. When looking at the history of this report thru the CMC, The given parameter won't be used.

Now, If I set a default value to this parameter in the CMS, the given value thru this program will be used ( the default value isn't used) , and the scheduling will work: In the history of this report, the occurence will be marked as "complete".

Easy solution would be that all my reports should have a default value for their parameters: but there are too many, and itsn't a god solution.

A more nice solution would be to find out why this is happening, and how can I solve this in the code ?

p.s.: the report that I try to generate is a .rpt (Crystal Report).

Thanks for your help.


This is a regression issue and is targeted to get fixed in Fix pack 5.5 on XI R2. Appearently if you can downgrade to XI R2 SP3 it should work.
