Report Builder - Fail Gracefully For Audit purposes


Level 6



I have created a report builder template using a report suite where I have enabled every variable (prop, eVar, list var...) which I wanted to use to audit across our main report suites, verifying that each variables are capturing the data that I expected.  Unfortunately, I have now learned that Report Builder will throw an error when a variable was not enabled for that report suite, making the main use of the template unusable.

I would like to see Report Builder just skip or return back "variable not enabled" instead of throwing an error.  As it is already catching this and showing a pop-up when a variable is not enabled, it shouldn't be any harder to let the request run and return a value indicating the variable is not enabled.
