Sorting by calculated measure possible?

Environment: SAC live-connection on BW 7.50 SP11 on HANA

I´ve created a bar chart to visualize efforts (as measure) per status (as dimension).

Then I changed sorting by measure effort from highest to lowest with the following result as expected.

Then I created a calculated restricted measure based on the same measure as following:

If I try now to sort again from highest to lowest the chart is not showing the correct sort order.

Somebody having the same issue?

Is this a restriction or a bug?

Regards,

Thomas

    Hi Thomas,

    Have you seen this article:

    2666019 - Calculated Measures cannot be sorted in SAP Analytics Cloud
    https://apps.support.sap.com/sap/support/knowledge/public/en/2666019

    FYI most of our knowledge and KBA's are available publicly via google / bing:

    See the section "5. Troubleshooting Already Performed" for some example google / bing queries at https://apps.support.sap.com/sap/support/knowledge/public/en/2487011

    Thanks

    Hi Thomas,

    My guess is that the problem is you are grouping by two characteristics (states and the characteristic of the restricted key figure) but displaying only one (status). Consider adding a filter for the characteristic of the restricted key figure in the source query, or adding the characteristic of the restricted key figure to the display, sorting characteristic of the restricted key figure then status. You could also hide the display of output of characteristic of the restricted key figure.
