3063617 - When filtering for a specific date during Dataset creation, the result is empty in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


  • No data returned when filtering for a specific date while creating a new Dataset based on SAP BW import data connection in SAP Analytics Cloud.
  • Filtering for the same date returns back data correctly in RSRT.


  • SAP Analytics Cloud 2021.9.2

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create an import data connection to SAP BW in SAP Analytics Cloud.
  2. Create a new Dataset using the previously created connection.
  3. Try to set prompt for Fiscal Year / Period.
  4. Enter manually the selected specific values.
  5. Observe the Datasets come back empty.


  • The Cloud Agent uses the value help of characteristics for validation of variable input.
  • For regular characteristics, the values are maintained in the master data table. For time characteristics, the values are generated typically a few years into the past and in the future.
  • However, the time interval for the value help can also be defined manually in transaction RSRHIERARCHYVIRT and will be persisted in table RSADMINS.
  • The entered value is basically outside of the range which is maintained for the Hierarchy characteristic.


  • Updating the Time Characteristics to include the current years should resolve the issue.
