'W(n)' in Acumatica URL not incrementing, causing widgets with shared filters to not load properly

I am having an issue with the ‘W(n)’ value in the URL generated by Acumatica.

For reference, this is a sample URL https://domain/AcumaticaInstanceName/(W(n))/Main?ScreenId= AR3010PL


Basically, when clicking a shared filter KPI widget on a Dashboard, the system opens the Generic Inquiry in a new tab, however the W(n) value is always the same and the shared filter that is opened is the same as when the user clicks the first filter. I am aware that this value is used for caching purposes, however I cant understand why its not incrementing such that the correct shared filter is opened.


Has anyone had experience with such issues please? If so, can you please advise what can be done to sort such issues?

Hello there!

I can’t replicate the issue on my end. Tried both legacy and quick filters. Once the Shared Filter is assigned on the scorecard KPI widget, the data is shown only from this filter, and the navigation happens only to it as well.

Tested on 20.202.0043.

Hi to all,


Thanks for the suggestion.


However, after some further investigation, we identified the above issue was due to the secure flag from two HTTP cookies (titled prevwin and  lastwin) being set to True. Hence, somehow the W(n) keeping count of the session across the browser was affected by this. To solve this, we had to remove the secure flag from the above cookies.


Hope this helps anyone who might come across this.
