Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create New Story

  3. In Story design add a Cross Tab widget
  4. Link the two dimensions in the widget. 
  5. Observe that the table displays results
  6. Then Enable Optimized view mode in Story Details
  7. Screen will show “Optimizing Story”
  8. Observe that after a while the above message is shown


Data Blending for OVM is currently not supported for any data sources.


Linked Dimensions and Blended Data in Story widgets are not supported for OVM.  This is a known gap and is being worked on to be available in the future.

So for now please disable OVM for Stories with blended data sources.
