Error description

  • In an environment that has multipl languages, defaults set for
    YorN parameters do not work properly for languages other than
    the base language.
    
    STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
    In a environment with two or mor languages (in my case I used an
    environment with English and French as second language).
    Go to -> Report Administration
    pick the report security_group.rptdesign
    in the Report tab, go to Parameters section and expand
    "independent".
    In the Default Value field, update from false to true or 1.
    Go back to the list view and click in the "Generate Request
    Page".
    Try to Run the report. The value will be "Y" for Independent?
    
    Go back to Maximo application. Click in Profile in the top menu
    and
    select "Default Information". Update Language and Locale value
    with the
    second language you have on your environment (in my case,
    french).
    
    Logout from Maximo application and log in again.
    Try to run the same report. The value will be "N" for
    Independent?
    
    RESULTS: chosen default not applied
    EXPECTED RESULTS:   Default should apply regardless of user
    language
