3132842 - Exception Cell definition is not copied to the new cell definition, when Dynamic Selection is created


The correspondent business scenario, from the technical point of view, requires an SAP Analytics Cloud Story to be built.

The underlying BW Query is having two structures defined and there is already an exception cell (explicit definition) created for the already existing cell definition (implicit cell definition).

The definition of a cell arises from the intersection of two structural elements from different structures. This implicit cell definition can be overwritten by an explicit definition. This defines an exception cell.

When a new Dynamic Selection is created, for example a Restricted Measure, the previously created explicit definition on an another cell, is not automatically copied to the newly defined cell.
