3116107 - Paste filter values does not work without ID shown in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


Pasting ID and Description does not work in the Paste Filter Values dialog


  • SAP Analytics Cloud 1.0

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a Story 
  2. Create a filter 
  3. Select the filter quick actions menu, select Paste Filter Values
  4. Enter ID and Description


The behavior is by design: 

The values you paste must match the displayed format: if you display ID and Description, you can paste in either ID or Description (but not both values for any one member). If you display the member IDs, you can only paste in ID values, and when displaying member descriptions, you can only paste in description values.

Pasting values for date dimensions (time, day, or date) is not available when your display is set to ID and Description.


Paste in either ID or Description (but not both values for any one member)
