2584302 - Filters do not get applied correctly in SAP Analytics Cloud


  • When using a Live Data Connection to SAP BW, the filters do not get applied properly in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC).


  • SAP Analytics Cloud
  • Live Data Connection
  • SAP Business Warehouse

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Logon to SAP Analytics Cloud.
  2. Open a Story where filters should be applied.
  3. Change or apply the filter selection.
  4. Notice that the data is not getting filtered properly.



  • This is a by design behavior. 
  • Selecting a top node will always keep the child node.


  • You need to explicitly exclude the child members. 
  • On BW-side you can set the child members to "always hide".
