Publication prompt not keeping values

HI All,

We are on BI4.1 SP05 Patch 6 and Patch 7.

We are having issues with publication scheduling.

We have default values set for publication source documents; however, when re schedule or schedule a new job and try to modify prompts the prompt window comes with not default/last selected prmopt values.
This is working fine in BO3.1 SP6.

If we check the source documents directly (out of publication). they do stick the last selected/default prompt values.

Steps to reproduce:

-Create a publication with source document/s

-Specify default values for prompts and save publication

-Schedule the publication with whatever values you want

-Irresective publication succeds or fails, try to reschedule the publication job and go to prompt>modify. Last selected prompts (mandatory) are blank again.

-Try to create a new schedule and the last selected values or default values of prompt are again not seen.

Additional information:

-In our case these prompts are coming from Universe query filters of a UNV universe.

But in our testing, publication shows same behavior with report level query fiters selected as prompts and/or UNX based universe.

-Keep last values are selected in query properties of the source reports. It makes no difference.

This straight forwardly looks like a buggy behavior, but certainly possible that we missed configuring something.
