2670630 - Missing attribute of account dimension in filters


In the account dimension 10 attributes are defined.

When attempting to select these attributes in a filter of a story only a subset of the attributes are available.


  • SAP Analytics Cloud 2018.12.1

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Modify an account dimension and add a number of additional columns to be used as filters.
  2. Create a story based on a model that uses the above account dimension.
  3. Filter the story by account and expand the attributes. Only a subset of the attributes will be visible for use.


Problem with regeneration of dimension when adding new columns (attributes) to an existing dimension.


The following work around can be applied while development investigates a fix.



  1. Open the modeler area and open the financial planning model
  2. Open any other dimension, other than the account dimension
  3. Create a new column (which is equal to adding a new attribute)
  4. Save the model
  5. Go to the stories and you should be able to see all the attributes

Clean up the work around:

  1. Go back to the model and the dimension in which you added a new attribute (column)
  2. Delete the column
  3. Save the model
