    => Ensure that you can use story filter to choose the dimension value in double-byte characters to filter data.
  3. Build Open Story URL to pass value in double-byte characters (Chinese, Japanese...) to Filter Parameters by referring to SAP Analytics Cloud URL API Developer Guide.
    => https://<TENANT>/sap/fpa/ui/tenants/<TENANT_ID>/bo/story/<STORY_ID>?f01Model=<MODEL_ID>&f01Dim=<DIMENSION_ID>&f01Val=<MEMBER_ID in Chinese or Japanese>
  4. Copy-paste the URL to Chrome browse to try to open the story.
