2954431 - Data action cannot be opened for editing in SAP Analytics Cloud for Planning (SAC)


  • When attempting to open a Data Action for editing the SAC client freezes on the refresh action (three dots) for 5 minutes.
  • After 5 minutes the attempt to open the data action fails.
  • It is still possible to use the data action in a story, but no further modification is possible


  • SAP Analytics Cloud (Enterprise) 2020.8.22

Reproducing the Issue

Attempt to open an existing Data Action for viewing or editing.

After 5 minutes the open action will fail.


Issue occurs when using the All-member of a dimension in any filter or mapping rule if that dimension contains a large number of members.

In this case a timeout occurs when attempting to parse the dimension members.


This issue will be fixed in a later release.

In the meantime the following work around can be used for any new data action:

  • instead of mapping the dimension please select a default value
  • this will have the same effect - aggregating the dimension to a certain value

If any existing Data Actions are affected and cannot be opened for editing to fix the issue please open an incident with SAP so that we can fix the issue via a backend edit
