2244268 - Dashboards 4.1: Drop-down filters overlap onto other components after updating from SP2 to SP5 / SP6


  • After updating SAP Dashboards from BI4.1 SP2 to SP5 / SP6, Components overlap on top of each other making the values of the drop-down non-visible to read:



  • SAP Dashboards 4.1 SP5, SP6

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Launch Dashboards 4.1 SP2
  2. Create a dashboardswith several filters components placed below each other
  3. Set Filter 1 to show in front of the others. Notice  in the 'object browser' pane, Filter 1 is at the top of the list
  4. Upgrade Dashboards to 4.1 SP5 / SP6
  5. Open and preview the dashboard: the values overlap on top of the other filters.


  • This is by-design. The display issue in SP2 has been rectified in SP5 / SP6



  • Re-arrange the components / filters in the 'object browser' panel following this method:

- The component on top of the list will be displayed at the back

- The component on the bottom of the list will be displayed in front of the others.
