2814624 - Add Variance menu is not visible when editing chart on SAC story


  • Add Variance menu is not visible when editing chart on SAC story 


  • SAP Analytics Cloud 2019.13.3

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Logon SAC.
  2. Edit a story with chart in it.
  3. Click "..." menu on the top right of the chart, find Add Variance menu is not visible.


This behavior is by design.


The "Add / Edit Variance" functionality is only available for supported chart types, it's unsupported for variance - particularly Combined Stacked Bar/Column + Line and Stacked Bar/Column are still unsupported and would not show this option from the + or ... menu.

The chart types that support variance are prior to wave 12 (2019.12) are:

  • Bar/Column, Waterfall, Numeric Point

We introduced additional chart types in wave 12+:

  • Combined Column + Line (not stacked though), Line, Radar, Scatter, Bubble, Heat map and Tree
