2604574 - Charts in stories open significantly faster for the second time in SAP Analytics Cloud


  • When opening the story for the second time, the charts are being displayed faster in SAP Analytics Cloud.


  • SAP Analytics Cloud 2018.2.2

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Logon to SAC.
  2. Open the Story for the first time.
  3. Notice the time it takes until the charts are being displayed.
  4. Go back to Browser >> Stories and open the same Story again. 
  5. Notice that the charts are being displayed significantly faster. 


  • The "Enable Progressive Chart Rendering" option is enabled in the System >> Administration >> System Configuration menu. 
  • When the rendering option is enabled, a version of the chart is cached (for an hour) and then displayed while the data is being retrieved and refreshed. If you try to interact with the cached chart, you will see the loading icon.


  • If you disable the "Progressive Chart Rendering" option then the charts will take the same time every time when you open the story.
  • You can find more information about this functionality in the following user's guide page: Progressive Chart Rendering.
