2996702 - Select Model functionality is different between object types Chart and Table in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)

Symptom

The following behavioroccurs in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC):

  • Select Model dialog screen is different between object types Chart and Table when creating a Canvas Page

Environment

  • SAP Analytics Cloud (Enterprise) 2020.21.8 

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Logon to Tenant
  2. Click on Create a Story
  3. Click on Add a Canvas Page
  4. Click on Chart - Select Model Screen is of type A (Select Dataset or Model, exploring My Files)
  5. Click on Table - Select Mode Screen is of type B (Select Model - Existing Model or No Model, and combobox to choose between existing models)
  6. Clicking on Select Other Model displays the Select Model Screen of type A as for Chart 

Cause

The behavior is by design because a Table can be built with no data, whereas the Chart requires an underlying Model or Dataset:

  • The Table has an extra screen that allows choosing between Existing Model and No Model.
  • Clicking on Other Model will display the Select Model or Dataset Dialog Screen as the one displayed by default for the Chart 

Resolution

  • Clicking on Other Model will display the Select Model or Dataset Dialog Screen as the one displayed by default for the Chart
