You are editing your report view by adding more fields, however you receive the error message

Reporting over more than 50 characteristics is not possible.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open a report that has at least 50 characteristics
  2. Add the characteristics to the view. Once you try to add more than 50 fields, you will get the above error message.


This is a standard restriction in reporting that applies to all reports. More than 50 characteristics cannot be shown.
