Reports containing Question variable columns display empty value in column cells. The correct values are stored in the field, which however displays null. When clicking on the field, the message "Security constraints prevents from writing to the field" appears.


Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a new variable for an existing catalog item from Catalog Definition > Record Producer > Submit an Idea.

    For more information on creating variable, refer to Create a Record Producer.

  2. Click on the catalog item and Try It. Populate the catalog item with data and click Submit.
  3. Navigate to Reports > Create New.

  4. Create a report with the following criteria and Save the report:

    • Table: Idea [Idea]
    • Type: List
  5. In the slushbucket, expand Question[+], navigate to the Catalog Item Submit and Idea and add it to the available slushbucket.

  6. Add some variables.

  7. Save the report.

    Note the data for the variable columns is not visible, and when clicked on the cell shows the error. Security prevents writing to this field.
