2835273 - Displaying ID's and Descriptions for Usage Content are returning the same values in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


  • Right now both ID/Description seems equal with the Name of the Team or Object stored in the backend.
  • If the Team has a description, that is not being picked when customer choosing Description to show instead of ID. 


  • SAP Analytics Cloud 2019.
  • SAP Analytics Cloud Usage Tracking Content

Reproducing the Issue

  1. First of all download the Usage Tracking Content from the Content Repository.
  2. Create a Story based on (for example) SAC_USAGE_FILES as example and choose the dimension "Description", which returns the name of the object.
  3. Try to change the displaying between ID and Description within certain dimension and observe that both ID and Dimension returns the same value.


The behavior is bydesign, because the name and description of a certaion object or team are separately stored in the HANA backend instance and aren't linked.


In case you would like to have our usage content enhanced please raise this as an enhancement request idea per our Influence Site:
