2626462 - "Dereferencing of the NULL reference" error in dashboards based on BW OLAP connection

Symptom

When using BW queries from an OLAP connection as data source:

Case 1: Choose a prompt value on your dashboard, an error screen will appear with “The application does not exist” or the message “Value <value> for variable <variable> is not valid and has been discarded” will appear.

Case 2: As soon as you try to open a dashboard, an error screen will appear with “Termination message sent ABED RS_EXCEPTION (000): Dereferencing of the NULL reference".

 

On both cases, you can see the following on the logs:

 

!MESSAGE Dereferencing of the NULL reference

com.sap.ip.bi.base.application.exceptions.AbortMessageRuntimeException: Termination message sent &#10;ABEND RS_EXCEPTION (000): Dereferencing of the NULL reference&#10;  MSGV1: Dereferencing of the NULL reference
