2776216 - Only Overview page appears when Running a Smart Discovery in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)

Symptom

  • Only Overview page appears when Running a Smart Discovery in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)
  • Warning message "We were unable to find any significant influencers for <...>.Please try adjusting your discovery settings to include more data" is shown

Environment

  • SAP Analytics Cloud 2019 all versions

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Log on to SAC tenant.
  2. Create a new story and then Run a Smart Discovery.
  3. Select a model and then set a target measure (or dimension).
    => Warning message "We were unable to find any significant influencers for <...>.Please try adjusting your discovery settings to include more data" is shown.
    => Only Overview page appears.

Cause

  • This is the designed behavior because the discovery's insight quality is considered to be poor or low according to help guide.
  • Smart Discovery detects patterns in your data to build a predictive model to predict the target you selected and from that model derives the information shown in the story such as Key Influencers, Unexpected Values and Simulation pages.
  • In order to build a robust model, the data included in the model needs to contain information in order to predict the target.  If an robust model cannot be built, the warning message will be shown and only Overview page will appear.
  • This is by design as the information provided automatically by Smart Discovery must be trustworthy and if we cannot build a robust model we cannot provide trustworthy information. 

Resolution

As suggested in the warning message,  please ry adjusting your discovery settings to include more data to build a robust predictive model.
