When you use LIKE with an asterisk together in a custom SQL or SWQL filter in Orion Report Writer reports, the report displays no results. Some versions of the product may display an SQL error.


For example, a filter like the following causes the report to return no results.

Caption Like 'AX3-*'


  • Orion Platform 2015.1.2 and later
  • NPM 11.5.2 and later
  • SAM 6.2 and later



When the filter is saved, some of the characters are stripped.
