2705123 - Analytics Group is not avalibale when trying to share Report (Canvas Type in Report Center)


We are trying to share One Report in Report Center, Category Report Canvas, to Groups, but when checking the Group Types, there is no Analytics Group available particularly for Report - Canvas only. Though, if we check for Report - Tables, the analytics groups are available there to share.

Reproducing the Issue

Step 1: Try to share any Canvas type report to groups

Step 2: Notice that the option called "Analytics Group" is not available


"Analytics group" term confuses the end user assuming it is ORD group, where as this group actually belong to legacy adhoc reports


Please be informed that Analytics Groups are the type of groups which were used to be present in the legacy ad-hoc report screen, where while sharing ad-hoc reports we used to create groups within analytics.

 With Report center we would not be able to modify it any longer. and since it used to be present only for adhoc report we see it just for adhoc part in report center and not for canvas.

 This has been put in place with 1808 release only, and is an expected behavior.

Analytics Groups : Applicable only for Report table and Dashboard.
