3310251 - Not able to see descriptions when granting access to a model in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


  • Using created a role to grant read access  to a model and based on the members of the account dimension.
  • When trying to select the member for which wanted to grant read access, the available members are displayed as C4A#CALC1, 2, 3, etc.
  • Both ID and Description are the same and It's not possible to know which calculated measure we need to select.


  • SAP Analytics Cloud (Enterprise) 2023.2.6

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Log into the SAC customer's tenant.
  2. Go to Security > Roles and open from Custom Roles the created Role.
  3. Then open the option Select Model and then Select New Model. 
  4. Navigate to the model patha and choose the model. 
  5. Click on Add Read Access then click on Add.
  6. After that try to select the Value abc for the attribute by opening the Select Member window.
  7. From there, if you scroll down using the vertical scroll bar, you may see Available Members in the Account dimension but the created Calculated measures only display the ID and Display name with some code information but not really a description. So the user can't understand or have any way to select the desired Calculated measures.
