2717911 - Dimensions are not available when creating restricted measures in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


  • When creating restricted measures in SAP Analytics Cloud Stories, some of the dimensions are not avalailable.
  • This behavior appears, only in case of SAP Business Warehouse (BW) live data models.


  • SAP Analytics Cloud 2018.19.3
  • SAP Business Warehouse

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Logon to SAP Analytics Cloud.
  2. Create a new Story.
  3. Add a chart and select a BW live data model as the datasource.
  4. Add a new calculation.
  5. Select restricted measure.
  6. Select the required measure.
  7. Notice that some of the dimensions are not available when trying to select the dimensions.


  • It is not possible to create restricted measures in SAC from key figures already restricted in BW.


  • The behavior is by design.
  • Dimension restrictions need to be managed either BW or SAC side, it is not possible to combine.
