Variance Data Labels are not displayed on some values in a Bar Chart within an SAP Analytics Cloud story when the "Data Labels" option is selected.


  • SAP Analytics Cloud 2018.22.3

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Log in to SAP Analytics Cloud
  2. Create a story
  3. In the Builder tab, add a Bar/Column Chart
  4. Add a Measure and a Dimension
  5. At the bottom of the Builder tab, add Variance
  6. Observe that the data can be changed automatically and some time the correct label for a variance is not shown.
  7. Axis must be moved manually to see the value correctly even when the "Avoid Data Label Overlap" is enabled.


This issue is to be related to the container widget within the variance chart.
