    Custom properties missing in Report Writer

      I just recently upgraded our Orion install from version 8 to 9. I tried to create a report in Report Writer and noticed that that I cannot filter by the custom properties I had created. They were there before the upgrade, but now they aren't. Any explanations. Please note that if I go into Custom Property Editor everything is there.

          Hello there


           I have this also.


          Running Orion V9 SP1.


          If I run the query on the report writer, all looks OK when I extract a custom property. When I build the report though, the custom property repeats the heading I created all the way down the column (not getting variable it appears).


           


          Also, my reports section on the Orion website show all my reports from the days I used V8.0 but they are not visible in the report writer itself. 


           


          Any ideas on what went missing?


          Thanks


          Ken

            I also had this same issue in version 9.0.
            I was recommended to add a new custom property to the nodes and then the custom property would "magically" appear.  Like the proverbial rabbit they did!

            I had to repeat this exercise when I upgraded to 9.1. BTW, removing the additonal field had no impact on the Custom Property not working.
            Within the report writer I needed to verify that the custom properties were again populated.  This was a 50/50 situation.
