2975534 - Attribute of a referencing characteristic not visible in reporting


An attribute of a referencing characteristic, which is marked as an InfoProvider, is not visible in the reporting. This can happen in the following scenario:

  • Characteristic (CHA) A is compounded to Characteristic CMP
  • CHA A has the flag "Usable as InfoProvider" set
  • CHA B is referencing to Characteristic A
  • CHA B has the flag "Usable as InfoProvider" set
  • The compounding in CHA B is adjusted to CMPR, where CMPR is referencing to CMP
  • CHA A has an attribute called ATTR
  • ATTR is compounded to CMP


When reporting on CHA A via AO, LISTCUBE, Query, then the attribute ATTR is visible and available.

When reporting on CHA B via AO, LISTCUBE, Query, then the attribute ATTR is not visible and not available for reporting.
