Design Studio - Dimension Filter not working

Nov 01, 2017 at 01:05 PM

I have the following issue in Design Studio.

I am using the following things:

- Some Bex Queries based on the same Composite Provider

- One query, based on the same Composite Provider, shows only one of the InfoObjects, but at Hierarchical level, expanded to max. level (Company Code)

- In Design studio, I have two Info Charts and a Cross-tab based on those queries (all of them containing the InfoObject using the Hierarchy)

- Also, in Design Studio, I have a Dimension Filter based on that Info Object, with a DataSource having the query with the Hierarchical Display, and the Target is all the other data sources

When I try to filter data choosing a hierarchical level of that InfoObject, the Dimension Filter works perfectly for the Cross-tab, but for the graphs, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't (the graphs are Info Charts)

Could you please let me know if there is any additional setting that might be needed in order to make the Dimension Filter work properly? Or if there is an incompatibility? I am using SAP BI on Hana as a Source System and the latest version of Design Studio.

Also, I do not use any Processing Group.

Thank you,

Sebastian - you may want to apply to a later patch of Design Studio, such as SP5 - see - not sure it will fix, but it may help

Thank you! Do you know a workaround for hierarchies?
