When creating a chart, you get the warning "Top N has been automatically applied to the chart because your data selection has too many values. To reduce the amount of data in the chart, add some filters"
When you try to apply a different sort to the chart, the sort option is grayed out.
- SAP Analytics Cloud 2021.20+
This feature is intended help SAC Chart designers avoid overplotting their charts and give enough data to allow designers to adjust filters or the structure of their charts to provide the best visualization.
The Auto Top N feature will trigger at different numbers of records depending on the type of chart. It can be overridden if you set a manual Top N value larger than the default value.
Note: These values are current as of wave 2020.02
|Chart Type||Auto Top N Trigger||Mobile Auto Top N Trigger||Scrollbar|
|Bar / Column||500||20||Yes|
|Bullet||No Limits Defined|
|Combination Column & Line||500||20||Yes|
|Combination Stacked Column & Line||500||20||Yes|
|Scatterplot||No Limits Defined|
|Bubble||No Limits Defined|
|Trend Time Series||No Limits Defined|
|Waterfall||No Limits Defined|
Note: There is a different type of sort called Auto Limit that may be applied if the following criteria are met:
Time entity must exist and must be bound to the outer most dimension
The chart must support Sort (Heatmap is not supported even though it supports Sort)
Either Chart has no existing Sort or a sort exists on the Time dimension
if Auto Limit is triggered, then it will automatically query and sort (ascending) the last-N values sorted by the Time entity provided the Time entity exists and is the outer most dimension.
Exception as limitation by design: This solution does not apply to Box Plot as Box Plot doesn't currently support manually defining a rank. Without that it's not possible to override the Auto Top N with a larger value.
