3193180 - Allocation result is not as expected in in SAP Analytics Cloud for Planning (SAC)


The following behavior occurs in SAP Analytics Cloud for Planning (SAC):

  • The allocation does not generate any result
  • The allocation generates the result but it is not the expected values


  • SAP Analytics Cloud (Enterprise) 2022.2.11 

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Run an allocation step or an allocation process.
  2. Check the results.


  • Cause 1:
    In the allocation step, allocation rules are always configured based on the default hierarchy of the dimensions.
    When you check the source data, you are not selecting the default hierarchy so you can not seeing the actual source data.
  • Cause 2:
    The driver data must not be viewed with filters active which will not be effective when calculating the actual driver values when the allocation algorithm is being processed.
    When you check the driver data, you are applying it to a filter that is not defined as the reference dimensions or the date dimension (the date dimension is a reference dimension by default, unless you also set it as a target) so you are not seeing the actual driver data.


  • Resolution 1:
    Display the source data and target data with the default hierarchy for each dimension.
    There is a plan to allow the configuration of the used hierarchy in the allocation step in the future. However, we cannot tell the exact release version at the moment.
  • Resolution 2:
    Display the driver data without any additional filters. (if you do not set any reference dimension in the allocation process, please display the driver data only with the date filter)
