2726048 - Personal saved filters missing since the upgrade after upgrading to SAP S/4HANA Cloud


After upgrading SAP S/4HANA Cloud/On Premise to newer version, personal filters (views) have been disappeared.


  • SAP S/4HANA Cloud
  • SAP S/4HANA On Premise
  • SAPUI5


The issue is caused by the change of the persistencyKey of Smart Variant Management which has been changed from searchListReportVariant to _ST_SmartVariantManagement. The persistencyKey is the key for storing the personalization data for the smart controls. All variants users created with the old persistencyKey are not valid anymore. Therefore, the variants for the filter bar and the result table have been managed independent from each other prior versions. This variant management was switched to a new mechanism ("Smart Variant Management") that handles all variants of the entire app correctly but this change turned out to be incompatible for existing variants.


To resolve this issue, the user needs recreate the user variants.
