2775513 - Default date format for Input Parameters changed after upgrade in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


After last SAC system update we noticed the default Input Parameters date format were impacted. Now they default display date format is YYYYMMDD.

Before the upgrade, dates were displayed in external format like DD/MM/YYYY.

We can't find a way to change the default date format back to the one it was before the update.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Log into the customer tenant with the customer’s tenant URL and go to a Story with date Input Parameters to test this issue.
  2. Input parameters with date window is displayed with date format YYYYMMDD which is not the desired format.
  3. Accept those default date with that format to get the Story data displayed with the same date format.
  4. However if you open the same Story again and from the date prompts window, click on the x on each fields and click again to select an available date from the Data Base (Data coming from a Live Hana connection), then the dates are displayed in the format dd/mm/yyyy which is the default desired date format.
  5. Finally, if you select any dates with the right format and accept them to display data, the right date format is displayed on the story.
