2593540 - Restricted Key Figure Breaches Restrictions


You have created a restricted key figure. However when you open the report and check the key figure value you realise the restriction is not applied correctly. For example you have taken key figure ABC (ABC represent the key figure name) and restricted it to status = completed, but in the report this is not taken into account.


  • Business By Design.
  • Cloud for Customer.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open the Report from the respective work center.
  2. Execute the report.
  3. Check the value of your restricted key figure.

You identify that the key figure value is not restricted correctly.


This can happen when the Restricted Key figure is based on another Calculated Key figure. For example Restricted Key figure A is based on a Calculated Key figure DEF.
The Calculated Key figure has a formula X+Y. In such cases the restriction will be applied to the formula in the Calculated Key figure DEF first.
The resultant value of the calculation will be displayed for the Key figure ABC.


This is an expected system behaviour.
