3010972 - Data labels are missing in Donut chart if legend placement set to below chart in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


The following issue occurs with donut charts in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC):


  • SAP Analytics Cloud (Enterprise) 2020.21.11

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a donut chart
  2. Open designer panel set Legend Placement: Above Chart
  3. In Show/Hide setting of donut chart mark Data Label as visible
  4. Note that All Data labels are visible
  5. Now update Legend Placement to Below Chart
  6. Note that the data labels located in top part of Donut chart are missing


It's expected that the data labels within a pie can hide if there isn't sufficient space to render them as we set aside a fixed amount of space and if the chart is too small or over plotted then the label and stem may hide to keep the chart from being cluttered even if the data label setting is on in the show/hide options.This behavior is by design in SAC.


For workaround please refer to this guide:
