3029387 - "Ghost" Model is created when building Story or Analytic Application in SAC when creation of model is not directly possible


  • Creating Models based on Live DWC is not possible in SAC
  • However, when we create a Story or Analytics Application based on DWC, a model is created in the back ground
  • This model is not visible in the file system for SAC but can be seen when we attempt to do a Content Network Share


  • SAP Analytics Cloud (Enterprise) 2021.2.8

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create Story or Analytics Application based on DWC
  2. Attempt a Content Network Share and notice Models under Content


DWC connections cannot be used to create public models. 
It will be accessible only while creating stories to create ghost/private models.
This is product design.


Create story from live connection directly, then the ghost model will be generated automatically.
