2644146 - 'Clean and Replace' import method cleans all data in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC) & SAP Digital Boardroom


When importing data from an SAP BW datasource using the 'Clean and Replace' import method, all data will be cleaned and replaced, despite historical data not being required in a report in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


  • SAP Analytics Cloud 2018.8.1


This behaviour is currently by design.


The "Scope Replacement" feature will introduce a new "Clean and Replace subset of data" feature which is scheduled to be released around late May to early June, but this is subject to change.

The feature will allow you to define a scope of which data will be cleansed, and then replace these accordingly.
