Reproducing the Issue
- Go to the work center Business Analytics and select the view Design Reports.
- Click New > Report.
- Enter all required details in step 1 and click Next.
- Make the required settings in the next steps and move to step 5.
- Here, the Hide checkbox is grayed out.
This checkbox can only be used for inherited variables. For example, if you copy a report which is using inherited variables like in the case of key figure groups, such variables can be hidden.
If you want a variable to not be shown in the selection area, you can set the variable setting to No Value Selection in step 4 of the report wizard.
You can also use Fixed Value Selection if you would like to maintain a variable which the business user is not supposed to change.
