2518090 - Cannot add an additional hierarchy to an account dimension in SAP Analytics Cloud


Customer would like to add an additional / multiple hierarchy to the Account dimension in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC).

In any other dimension, it is possible to click the "+" symbol to add an additional hierarchy.

However this option is not available for the Account dimension.

Is it possible to add an additional hierarchy to an Account dimension?


This is a current limitation of the Account dimension.

While it is possible to add additional hierarchies to other dimension types, it is not possible for the Account dimension type.

Searching for "Hierarchies" in the online help for SAP Analytics Cloud returns the following:

The Account dimension has only a single hierarchy, but you can add additional hierarchies to all other dimension types by selecting Add Hierarchy from the Add menu on the toolbar. When you add a hierarchy, a new column is inserted in the grid, and you enter the name of the new hierarchy in the column header.
