2360908 - Hidden keyfigures in structures with hierarchical display


It is possible to create a query that contains:

  1. Keyfigure structures with hierarchical display (Keyfigure Hierarchy). Also see WIKI Example:
  2. As well as hidden keyfigures within this keyfigure hierarchy.

By combining these  features it is possible to build up a scenario where a keyfigure is used as a child of another keyfigure that has display setting "Always Hide".
In this case it is not clear on how to handle such a scenario and the behaviour might differ between different frontend implementations:

  • In the ABAP runtime (which e.g. Bex Analyzer is based on) keyfigures that are set to "Always Hide" as well as all their children are not displayed.
  • In BICS-based frontend tools (such as the JavaWeb runtime or Analysis for Office) keyfigures set to "Always Hide" are not displayed. Underying "displayable" children are moved to the upper level.
