Do not auto generate report on default values

Hi Experts!

I have a report with default values setup. However, when clicking the report, it auto generates it without clicking the "View Report" button -- as expected behavior. I want to have the default values as default when opening the report but does not need to auto generate it. Since other user may change the default values.

When I go to the report Properties >> Parameters and uncheck the Has Default, it removes my default values provided.

I wanted to have the default values but only generated when clicking the "View Report" button -- even at the first time clicking the report.

    You can either remove one of the default values or mark the default value to be null. This is just a temporary workaround. More discussions on this can be seen here:-
