Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a Story and add an Input Control
  2. Click the filter, choose the Data Source, and add a Hierarchy Dimension
  3. Try to type anything into the search bar of the filter
    Note that it is not possible


In Optimized View mode, search for Business Warehouse (BW) hierarchy filter is disabled. 
Search can not be performed due to the backend limitation.
