2438047 - How does the color palette work in SAP BusinessObjects Cloud


  • The color palette provides max. 9 colors visible for end users.
  • If you have a chart with more then 9 members, the chart shows additional colors.


  • SAP BusinessObjects Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Use "BestRun_Demo" for testing
  2. Create a pie chart
  3. Add quantity sold as measue
  4. Add Product & Sales Manager as color
  5. Select ice blue-color palette
  6. Pie chart shows other colors.


Default color palettes are showing 9 colors however they contain more than 9 colors at the same time.


The behavior is bydesign, therefore you may raise an enhancement request on SAP Idea Place:
