Environment

  2. Changing the palette settings does not have the desired effect

Cause

  • It's not currently possible to change the pallet setting for Heat and Tree maps (and for Geomap Chloropleth charts).

Resolution

  1. None at this time. This limitation is acknowledged and an Enhancement Request has been logged at this location: https://cw.sdn.sap.com/cw/ideas/13398 - Please vote for the suggested feature.
  2. For information, if a simple chart is created using only a single Measure, then the expected palette is used:

  • Since the colors correspond to the rank of the metrics, in some cases changing the sort of the measures (Ascending/Descending) can influence this behavior.
