Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create the model from an Excel file.
  2. Create the story based on the model.
  3. Create a story filter selecting some of the dimension members (For Example: "Member1" and "Member2").
  4. Save the story.
  5. Open the model and change the description of the dimension members (For Example: "Member1" into "MEMBER1").
  6. Save the model.
  7. Go Back to the story and check the story filter.
  8. Notice, that the filter still shows "Member1".


"Static" filters (All the filters not using "All Members" option) do not reload the data for filters.


  • The behavior is by design.
  • The filter values are only updated for "dynamic" filters (using "All Members" option).
