3125082 - Charts do not display field description in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


After update 2021.23.3 is applied to a tenant, in stories based on a Live BW connection, charts do not display field descriptions - even if the chart is set to display the description.  Instead charts display the ID as the description.

This issue only affects charts.  Tables and filters display the description correctly.


  • SAP Analytics Cloud (Enterprise) 2021.23.3

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a new story based on a Live BW connection
  2. Add a chart
  3. Set it to display the field description - note that it displays the ID instead.
