3248347 - Opening a story with Optimized View mode enabled will cause the variable values to show ID values instead of Description in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)

Symptom

  • When opening a story with Optimized View mode enabled the Variable prompt values will, by default, show the values in form of ID.
  • Executing the same workflow with the same story but with Optimized view mode disabled, the variables will return Description (expected) values.

  • Deleting the ID values and re-selecting those with the Value Helper function will then cause to return the values as Description. Saving the prompt values as Description won't solve the issue as re-opening the story, the variables will again return as ID.

Environment

  • SAP Analytics Cloud (Enterprise) 2021.15.8

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open story with Optimized View Mode enabled.
  2. See the Variable window will present the values as ID.
  3. Open a copy version of the story where Optimized View Mode is disabled.
  4. Observe that in this scenario the Variables will return as Description.
