BEx Variables as "Default Values" in Webi reports (BO 4.1 SP3)
We are on BO 4.1 SP3.
I have an issue where we have Characteristic value Variables in Bex queries which have some "Default Values" defined at BEx.
However these are not being treated as filters at Webi reports based on BICS Connection.
I have come across an SAP note :
This note is applicable to Environment : SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence Platform 4.0 SP04 - Patch 12
Has anyone faced this issue in 4.1 ?
Any inputs will be appreciated.
Thanks & Regards

Behavior you describe is normal, as explained in Web Intelligence user guide.
Variables configured in Default Values panel of BEx Query will not be leveraged anymore starting from BI4.0 SP04 Patch12; this fix is still valid in BI4.1 and all versions of product released after BI4.0 SP04 Patch12.
You should put this Variable in Characteristic Restriction panel if you want to filter effectively in BOE products.
