1722968 - Edit Filter is Grayed Out in Reports


You want to filter the content of your report, however the button Edit Filter is grayed out.


  • SAP Business ByDesign
  • SAP Cloud for Customer

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Business Analytics work center.
  2. Select the Design Reports view.
  3. In the reports list, open the required report.

The Filter tab is grayed out.


This is the standard system behavior as there is no actual content to be filtered yet.


To enable the Edit Filter button, you have to first run the specific report and then this button will be available.

The reason for such behavior is that if there is no content to be filtered then the functionality is not necessary, therefore it is grayed out. However, as soon as you execute such report, the button Edit Filter will be available.
