2484211 - Story filter gets deleted after chart filter based on the same dimension is removed in SAP Analytics Cloud

  • Linked analysis has been enabled for the chart contains the chart filter with "Entire story + This chart" option.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a bar chart add a measure and select the time dimension for dimensions.
  2. Apply linked analysis to "Entire story + This Chart"
  3. Create a Story filter based on the same dimension used in the chart.
  4. Filter selected data points.
  5. Cancel the applied filter.
  6. Notice that the Story filter also disappeared.


  • When using linked analysis, filtering gets “shared” between story and chart filter applied on the same dimension.
