3060613 - Custom group hierarchy display lost after variable value change in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


  • Custom Group Hierarchy display lost for the dimension after variable value change in SAC story.
  • Expectation: the hierarchy display should remain after changing the variable values.


  • SAP Analytics Cloud (Enterprise) 2021.07.07
  • Live Data Connection to SAP BW

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Login to SAC and create a story with a table widget.
  2. Define a custom group hierarchy on a dimension: Video: Create Custom Group Hierarchies in Stories (BW Live Data Series Part 7)
  3. Set this custom hierarchy view mode: Edit - Designer - Builder - Rows - select dimension - Manage filters: [Dimension name] => Show Hierarchy is set to [Custom hierarchy name]
  4. When you change the value of the variable used as input control/story filter => the dimension will switch to show flat presentation instead of custom hierarchy mode.


This issue is currently under investigation by development.
