2656130 - Cannot change measure's description in Modeler based on Live data and the data source is BO in SAP Analytics Cloud

Symptom

  • Cannot change measure's description in Modeler based on Live data and the data source is SAP BusinessObjects (BO) in SAP Analytics Cloud

Environment

  • SAP Analytics Cloud 2018.09.5

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a Model based on Live data. The data source is BO.
  2. Note that dimension's discription can be changed, but measures' are gray out, cannot be changed

Cause

This is a by design behavior.

Its a feature previously implemented that way. The reason is that Measures are only editable when "Live Data Connection" is based on "SAP HANA" only not even on "SAP Universe".

Resolution

Development team has acknowledged this and it is planned as a Backlog item in the future version.
