We are facing an issue with Dashboards in SAP BO 4.2.
Issue: User is trying to open a dashboard from Launch Pad. The dashboard refreshes fine and shows the data properly. If the user closes that particular instance by X-close and again tries to view the dashboard, then the dashboard shows empty or null values for the same variables. We need to refresh it manually to get the data.
In the designer mode, refresh before components are loaded is also checked.
