2943444 - Private version saved with Data Locks in in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


  •  Private version keeps data locks.
  •  It is not possible to do the forecast on private version (option Predictive Forecast is greyed out). 


SAP Analytics Cloud Version 2020.8.15

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a story using data locking as Restricted dims.
  2. Copy restricted version to a private version.


This is by design.


  • Data Entries are always done in private version first. Even if a data entry is done on a public version first an editable version is laid over the public version. Data Locking is finally enforced when a private version is published to a public version. Before this the locks visible on the grid are just indicators to show which values can be published at all.
  • If the user wants to play with number and does not intend to publish he may use the option "Ignore Data Locks" on a table. This will allow him to make data entries. However the Data Locking during publish can not be bypassed.

The only exception is administrators and owner of a model are always able to publish any data. Data Locking is not enforced during publishing for those users.
