    User defined filters overlay the report area in Process Portal
    ad hoc report pages in BPM V8.0.1.1 and higher, and if there
    are multiple reports on a page, the filters are not
    separated by report.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Changes were made to the page layout and logic for ad hoc
    report dashboards such that the dashboards will be
    rendered as follows:
    
    1) If the dashboard contains only one report, the user filter
    dropdowns will be displayed to the right side of the report,
    so they will never overlay the report.
    
    2) If there are multiple reports, the toolbar and user filter
    dropdowns will be hidden by default; a procedure for adding a
    link to the page to display the toolbar and filters
    (documented in the interim fix readme file) is available.
    
    An interim fix for Business Process Manager Version 8.0.1.1
    has been published to Fix Central.  Please refer to the
    separate file that is automatically downloaded with the
    interim fix for prerequisite information and
    installation/uninstallation instructions (and, the procedure
    for displaying the toolbar and filters for multiple reports on
    a page as mentioned above).
