2857423 - Selection does not work in the report


Selection given in the report does not show the correct results.


  • SAP Business ByDesign
  • SAP Cloud for Customer

Reproducing the Issue

In order to reproduce this behavior, you can follow the steps below:

  1. Navigate to Business Analytics Work Center
  2. Navigate to Design Reports Work Center View
  3. Search for the report you experience the behavior
  4. Give the required selection in the characteristic and run the report
  5. The expected results are not displayed in the report


This is because, while creating the report via report wizard you have enabled Fixed Hierarchy for the same characteristic.


Kindly add the characteristic via Report Wizard in the report rather then Add Fields.
As current code-line does not allow the selection to work at run time when fixed hierarchy is enabled.
