Extension Field as Key Figure

Hi expersts,

I added an extension field availability with list values available, booked and sold to Product object and Product Master Data data source. Now I want to make a a heat map report by product availability (a mesh report common for appartment sellers).

How can I use availability extension field as a key figure?

I tried to create a restricted key figure based on counter with fixed restriction by value of availability, but it is not possible to add it. Here are screenshots:

- before I aded fixed value

- adding a value

- after adding a value

Best regards,

Nadezhda Rukavishnikova

    From your screen shots it looks like you have created a Characteristic and not a Key figure.

    You should first create the Extension field as a Key figure from Business Analytics workcenter or from inside the Report by clicking on ADD fields button when you are under Business Analytics- Your Report - Click Add Fields - Click Key Figure and - Own Key Figure.

    Create the field as key Figure first and then you can use it as a key Figure in the Report.

    hi Nadezhda,

    I am assuming that you have created an extension field of type list, with these values. When you tried to define a restricted key figure on the field Counter, did you select one of the values from the options or did you type it in? If you have selected and the restriction is not retained, then please do raise an incident and we will take a look into your tenant. There is no additional set-up needed.

      Hi Sebastine,

      Yes, I created a list field and selected one of its values (not typed) during restriction selection. I have already created an incident, so I hope for a quick resolution.

      Best regards,
