  •  A dimension which is a virtual characteristic deriving its master data from the S4 functionally is greyed out in BPC web, allowing no changes to the master data, since this being a virtual characteristic.
  • However, when the object is selected, the button "Edit Hierarchies" is enabled.


  • When clicking “Edit Hierarchies” and when trying to add a new custom hierarchy directly in S4, as a centrally visible hierarchy, the system does not display any master data to be added to this hierarchy.

  • For local hierarhies it is possible to create and maintain nodes.
