2615382 - Bottom N Filtering in charts issues when zero supression is enabled in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


When applying a Bottom N filter to a chart in an SAP Analytics Cloud story whilst zero supression is active in the BEx Query, then all 0 values will not be displayed but will be counted towards the N value. For example, if a Bottom 5 filter is applied, and there are 3 records which have 0 values, then only 2 records will be shown, despite the requirement to see the bottom 5 values, excluding the records with 0 values.


  • SAP Analytics Cloud 2018.4.0
  • SAP Business Warehouse 7.5 SP7

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Log in to SAP Analytics Cloud
  2. Create a story using a BW Live Data Connection which has "Supress Zeros" enabled as a parameter on the BEx Query
  3. Add a bar/column chart under the 'Comparison' within the Builder tab
  4. Apply a bottom N filter by hovering over the chart and clicking the "Choose Top N Options" button.
