Can we hide Stories in a folder of SAP Analytics cloud

Hi Members,

For our requirement, we have used SAC stories to build functional dashboards and as there are multiple stories, we have used digital boardroom to weave the stories into single bigger dashboards for the management to consume it.

Users are expected to open and use only the digital boardroom and not expected to utilize stories as they are already present in digital boardroom.

When we publish the stories and digital boardroom for users, they are seeing digital boardroom and stories both. This is confusing few end users to open stories and not digital board room. Ideally they should just see Digital boardroom and not anything else.

We have tried it to solve it via training and documentation but best way is to be able to hide the stories in the folder itself rather than maintaining them in multiple folders and manage there security structure.

So wanted to check if there is any way to hide stories in folder, without maintaining multiple folders and securities.

    Hello Mayur,

    hiding stories that you have access to is not possible. I would propose one of the following approaches:

    • move the stories in a subfolder and have only the DiBo files in the main folder. This way there should be less confusion
    • use Analytics Catalog to point the users to the relevant objects.

    • Thanks Jens Braun. We did thought about having the stories and digital boardroom in separate folders but wanted to explore other options where user would not see the stories at all(if any). We will go with sub-folder option for now.

      I think Analytics catalog is also a good idea and as now it is part of existing SAC licensing (as compared to Hub), we can utilize it too, so users can have tile wise interface.

      Thanks a lot again.
