3346730 - Is it possible to dynamically format rows of the same hierarchy level with the styling rule in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC) & SAP Digital Boardroom?


You would like to apply a styling rule to your table: 

  • that will coherently display the rows with the same background color,
  • and these rows belong to the same hierarchy level/generation.
  • Affected table is in new Unified story/story 2.0


SAP Analytics Cloud  2023.12.1

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Log on to SAC.
  2. Open the new unified story that contains table.
  3. Select table in edit mode and choose styling panel.
  4. In styling rule menu try to add a rule that applies only to the rows on the same leaf level/hierarchy level.
  5. Notice that you can only apply one single rule to members with the same parent, not to the same level.


This is a by-design behavior currently for the product.


Please create an enhancement request on the following page as per KBA: 2424376 - How do you create an enhancement request and provide feedback for SAP Analytics Cloud? - SAP for Me 

Workaround available:

  1. Manually select a member out of every group in the table.
  2. Create one rule for each of the siblings.
    Please note: future new level entries will not be dynamically added.
