I recently updated our development environment from MicroStrategy 9.2.1m to version 9.3.1. While testing if the update broke anything I found out that some of my attribute selectors are no longer working. All affected selectors used derived elements which were defined in the grid report - not in the dashboard. If you run into the same issue try the following: Remove derived elements from the grid report Open your dashboard in editable mode in the web Add the attribute to your grid on the dashboard Create derived elements in the dashboard. An example can be found in this technote . Create a selector from this attribute. Hope this helps.
