3254482 - Creating new calculated measure won't prompt auto complete suggestion window for dimension attributes in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)

Symptom

  • When creating a new calculated measure it's not possible to prompt the auto complete suggestion window for dimension attributes in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC).
  • User would expect to prompt the window for available dimension attributes when typing in ".[" characters in the Calculation Editor.
  • "ctrl+space" key combination will prompt the complete suggestion window, however, it won't include the dimension attributes.
  • The issue can't be reproduced when creating calculated measures in stories based on import data connection. Only live data connection scenarios seems to be affected. 
  • One way to make it work, if there is an already existing calculation where dimension attributes are added, deleting them and recreating the formula will allow the dimension attribute window to prompt after typing ".[" characters even in live data connection.

Environment

  • SAP Analytics Cloud (Enterprise) 2022.15.15

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open a story based on live data connection.
  2. Select the desired chart and create a new calculated measure on it.
  3. Observe that after typing ".[" keys, the auto complete suggestion window will not be prompted to show the possible selection of dimension attributes.

Note:
If there is an existing calculated measure where a dimension attribute is added already, deleting the previously set dimension attribute and then typing ".[" keys, will allow the prompt to happen for the available dimension attributes.
