2400529 - Running allocations disables the "Clear Selected Model" function in SAP Analytics Cloud


Whenever an allocation has been run on data in a model, the "clear model" function no longer works on the model.
This issue occurs not only when creating a model and loading data from BW but it also occurs when the model has been created from an excel sheet.


  • SAP Analytics Cloud 2017.13

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a model ModelA by importing data from an xls file
  2. Do the necessary mapping
  3. Create a story from ModelA: check the data has been loaded successfully.
  4. Select the model and click the “Clear Model” button on the top right of the screen
  5. Leave the screen as it was, and click “OK
  6. Confirm that the model had been cleared by creating a new story and checking for data: story is empty
  7. TheSelect ModelA again and import data from the same xlsx file
  8. Check again that data has been loaded successfully by creating a new story
  9. Create an allocation and ran that allocation on the data. The allocation was successful.
  10. Then clear the model again and create a story to check. But this  time the data had not been cleared.


This works as designed and data displayed is related to the private version that was generated by executing the Allocation Process.

Clearing a model does not remove private versions associated with the model.
