2678071 - "Apply selected dimension as a filter" under 'Hyperlink Options' in table causes Hyperlink greyed-out in SAP Analytics Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Logon to SAP Analytics Cloud.
  2. Create a new Story with 2 pages.
  3. Add a table to the first page.
  4. Add a hyperlink to the table using the below options:
    1. Link to: "Page".
    2. Page: "Next Page".
    3. "Hyperlink Options": Enable "Apply selected dimension as a filter" and "Cascading Effect".
  5. Notice that the hyperlink is grayed out when selecting a dimension in the table.


  • The behavior is by design.
  • If there are multiple dimensions stacked in the row axis, it is not obvious on which dimension value should be filtered.
    Therefore hyperlinks will only be available while selecting data cells.


  1. Select a data cell instead of the dimension member cells.
  2. Notice that the hyperlink is available.
