Dashboard from specific query doesn't appear in Menu Maintenance

There’s a BAQ I’ve created and it doesn’t throw any errors when putting it inside of a dashboard. However, when I deploy the dashboard as a dashboard assembly, it does not show up in menu maintenance. When I use the Test mode before deploying it, it works fine. When I use Test in the BAQ editor to retrieve the table, it works fine. It is only when I go to deploy this dashboard, that it doesn’t seem to work. There are no errors in the deployment box. It builds the dll and says it finishes. However, when I go to that drive location to view the dll, it is not there with the rest either.

Anything that would prevent the dashboard assembly dll from saving or building for a specific query? I have rebuilt the query, that did not work either. The query is shared and for all companies, so is the dashboard.


I would upload the dashboard but there are two UD fields being used (They are used elsewhere fine, however)

I’m a little stumped as to what I should even be looking for to troubleshoot here.

Double check your Company settings on everything. When this happens to me, it is usually because something is marked All Companies while another thing is Company specific.


They are all set to All Companies… I did notice, when I try to add the query to a new dashboard, there is an error on the actual Ice.UI.Dashboard.dll but I don’t know what is breaking it?

Do you have a parameter on the query? Or possibly a formula? It is trying to convert a NULL value into a string and cannot.

I’m not sure what it was. There were no parameters or formulas. I went ahead and remade the query and the dashboard from scratch, without using export or copy. As far as I can tell, it’s exactly the same but this time it works.
