Reproducing the Issue

Cause

The Headlines tool checks not just the Measure that is selected when creating a new headline but also the input measures. If any of the input measures are restricted the application error will appear.

Resolution

Check the users role for Measure Restrictions. If one of the Input Measures is restricted then it will need to be unrestricted to be able to use the Result Measure.
