2718186 - Error in Key Figure: Hierrarchy Node Parameter is Invalid


You have created a restricted key figure with a variable restriction, which you now would like to change to a fixed restriction. However on saving you get the following error messages:

"Parameter ABC (of object DEF) does not exist
Hierachy node parameter ABC is invalid" (ABC and DEF are technical IDs)

  • SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the work center Business Analytics, view Design Key Figures.
  2. Search for you key figure and click on Edit.
  3. Go to step 2.
  4. Change the restriction type to Fixed.
  5. Click on Set Fixed Value Selections and set the required variable.
  6. Click on Next.

You get the above errors.


In this key figure, you had previously saved a hierarchy and a variable restriction. Currently, there is an issue when changing from this key figure type to a fixed value restriction.


This will be adjusted with the release 1902. In the meantime, please create a new key figure where you set the fixed value selection straight away (i.e. do not save the variable restriction with a hierarchy first).
