Reproducing the Issue

Create a model from  SAP BW live data connection


This is working as desinged.


For models based on live connection, we have no option to add additional variables or change the default values of existing variables. Instead we offer during usage of a model in a story a variable dialog, allowing end users to set the values, which should be taken at that moment.

For live connections to BW we don't offer the option to add additional calculations in a model and therefore it also does not make sense to add further variables, used for calculations. That is the reason why the dialog is greyed out in the model.
