2717194 - Application Error on Measure When attempting to drill to detail


When viewing data from Workforce Analytics measure page, an Application error is populated when a value is selected for drill to detail


Workforce Analytics (WFA)

Reproducing the Issue

Select a WFA measure which will then direct the user to the measure landing page. Users can then hover over values in the queries to populate the drill to detail feature. If the measure does not have drill to detail enabled, an application error will be populated.


Drill to detail has to be enabled for each measure in the backend. Due to different complexities of the measures, some measures do not have drill to detail enabled due to configuration.
