As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only.

New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.

What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.

During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.

[SOLVED] WebFOCUS Auto Prompting Facility?

I recently received a new laptop and had to reinstall WF. Now when I run one of my reports in the development area I see "WebFOCUS Auto Prompting Facility" in my IE browser header. When I run the report (with all of the code to generate the SQL) nothing is returned. No report output, no SQL.
I don't remember this Auto Prompting title in the header on my old laptop.

Have I installed WF incorrectly? How can I correct this?

Thank you in advance.

PS - What is MRE? Is that an acronym for Managed Reporting Environment?

Check your setting for the parameter IBIF_wfdescribe for amper auto prompting for self-service reporting in the client console. Possible values are:-

OFF - Turns auto prompting off. This is the default value.

XML - The XML document describing the amper variables is displayed in the browser. This setting is used internally by the WebFOCUS tools and is recommended for debugging purposes only.

XMLRUN - Only prompts for amper variables created with -DEFAULT when there is another amper variable that does not have a value assigned and, therefore, will be prompted for.

XMLPROMPT - Prompts for amper variables created with -DEFAULT and for any other amper variable that does not have a value.

Note: Managed Reporting uses a separate variable setting, which is IBIMR_prompting.

Thank you for your reply. A colleague of mine determined that I needed to select the "Display Dialogue Manager commands" in the 'Run' (blue arrow) menu options.
