2487011 - What information do I need to provide when opening a case for SAP Analytics Cloud?




  • SAP Analytics Cloud (Enterprise)


We highly recommend using the Support Assistant to solve your issues faster!
See the following video for more information: Product Support -- Introducing the support assistant and support log assistant.

1. Generic information required to expedite case resolution

  1. What:
    1. Only one error or problem or issue or behavior should be logged for each case.
    2. Object name: The name or ID, and URL of the object like story, model, data action, analytic application, etc. Paste the direct URL if possible!
    3. Model Type: Analytic, planning, account or measure type, live, import (acquired / local), underlying data source (cloud or on-premise?), version / service pack of underlying data source.
    4. Details: Step-by-step description including navigation and expected results / actual results, process/workflow and the user (and role) that reproduced the error, problem, issue, or behavior.
    5. Performance Issues? See: Troubleshooting performance issues.
    6. Connection Issues? See: Troubleshooting Live connection issues or Troubleshooting Acquired connection issues.
  2. Time: When you experienced the issue, error or problem (if applicable).
  3. Errors, trace/console files, correlation ID and warnings (Mandatory for all front-end issues):
    1. Copy all errors or warnings observed in the application and in the browser console (Press F12 or CTRL + Shift + I on your keyboard).
    2. Attach a web browser HAR file and console log file to the case. See 2280022 - How to collect a HTTP archive (HAR) file. Mandatory for all front-end issues.
    3. Include the correlation ID (if available) to help track down the cause and help us resolve your case more quickly!
      • Note: The correlation ID is saved with all errors, but isn't a code that corresponds to a specific error. Instead, it's a unique identifier generated by the system to help us trace what the system was doing when the error occurred.
    4. Check the System > Monitor > Trace area for any errors. See the message/stack/detail columns.
  4. User credentials: Enable support user creation by following the instructions at Get More Help and SAP Support (under the Create a Support User section).
    1. Once a support user is created by SAP, assign a role (i.e. Admin) to the newly created support user (SAP_SUPPORT_ACCESS#).
    2. Add other user credentials for underlying data sources (BW, S4/HANA, BPC, etc.) into the secure area if applicable. See 1773689 for more information.
      • Note 1: Share the object such as the story, model, bookmark or connection by using the share icon, if available.
      • Note 2: Provide connection information for the data sources (live or import) connected to SAP Analytics Cloud. See Remote Support.
  5. System (URL) used: You may have multiple systems (test, production etc. URLs) but we do not know the exact one you are using.
  6. Which of your systems or products is affected? Choose the correct system ID to  receive the correct service level agreement (SLA):
    2. Installation: SAP ANALYTICS CLOUD
    3. System/Product: Choose the correct system using the description as your guide.
  7. Components: Please select the correct component based on your issue.
