2627427 - Cannot create story with Mandatory Prompt in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


It is impossible to create and save a story with a mandatory variable to be filled in when opening the story.

Any mandatory variable must be filled in before saving the story and this last chosen value is retained by the story as the default view when opening the story.


  • SAP Analytics Cloud 2018.05

Reproducing the Issue

Create a story based on a query or view with mandatory variable.

It is not possible to save this story without first choosing a member for each variable.

Since these members are retained in the story, subsequent opening of the story will use the chosen members as a default view.
