- Updates made on the HANA View does not affect the SAP Analytics Cloud story until the Model has been changed/modified and re-saved.
- As an example the newly added expressions in HANA view are not reflecting in Stories therefore you need to load the variables again to see the default values and save it.
- SAP Analytics Cloud 2018.
Reproducing the Issue
- Create a model in SAC based on a calculation view without input parameter.
- Create a story based on this model and save it.
- Define an input parameter on the HANA view.
- Update the Model in SAC for allowing variables from the view.
- Newly added parameter / prompt is being shown when running the story.
- Change the parameter on the HANA view by adding a particular Expression under default value.
- The SAC Story shows the prompt window, however it does not show the value from expression.
- Model, including the "Variables" must be updated and saved in order to get the default value expression in the Story as well.
- This issue is a limitation of using HANA Views currently in SAP Analytics Cloud.
- We store the default value from HANA at Model Save time and never update it unless the model is edited and resaved.
