"Unable to read the report metadata" and "parameter is missing a value" errors RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi There,

    I am having the same problem. 

    The parameters appear in the Dashboard Designer Report, but when I try to preview the Report, the following error is displayed:


    • The 'ParameterTest' parameter is missing a value 


    And in the Report Parameters (within the dashboard designer), when I click on "Edit..." the following error is displayed:


    • Unable to read the report metadata


    Any idea on how to solve it? 

    Thanks and best regards,

  • Hi Joss83,

    Do you have defaults assigned to your SSRS reports? Looks to me like the parameter is missing a default.

    If you have static parameters within your report,

    - provide a List of Available values to your parameters

    - within your dashboard designer, refresh your report

    - select the parameter, click on edit and select a default value

    - Try previewing your report now.

    Let me know if this works.
