3440021 - Input validation handling of BW query variables with Story 2.0 in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)

Symptom

  • When input validation is enabled on BW, upon opening the story in SAC an exception is expected in case of selecting invalid variable values.
  • While in Classic story the exception is raised, the prompt screen remains displayed, allowing users to change the variables to valid values. This would be the desired behavior.
    However, in Story 2.0, after the exception is raised, the prompt screen disappears, crashing the report.
  • The expectation is to keep the variable prompt on the screen to allow users to change to valid values.

Environment

SAP Analytics Cloud (Enterprise) 2024.2.8

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Define input validation on BW side.
  2. Open story based on BW live query.
  3. Select invalid values for the variable selection.
  4. Notice the error and the prompt disappear.

Cause

This issue is currently under investigation by development.
