3214698 - Story widgets don't load and display data in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


When opening a story it will only load partially in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC):

  • Some widgets will display data correctly.
  • Some widgets will indicate loading with the 3 dots but will not complete and will not display data.
  • Some widgets will run to an error message: "Error: [Cannot read properties of null (reading 'getName')]."  

The issue appears intermittently. Reloading the story can temporarily solve it.


  • SAP Analytics Cloud 2022.8.10

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Logon to SAC.
  2. Open up a story.
  3. Observe that the widgets will keep indicating that they are loading without displaying any data, some even run to an error message.


This issue is currently under investigation by development.
