3441170 - Variable Member's ID and descriptions are not changing according to data access language in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


Variables ID and description are not getting changed according to data access language in SAP Analytics Cloud.


SAP Analytics Cloud 2024.2.8

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Log into SAC.
  2. Go to profile settings.
  3. Under the user preference.
  4. Change the language in front of data access language option.

Notice that the language is not changed fully in the story.


If the story is viewed with a different data access language than the one saved with the story, the user will see the data in their current data access language. For example, if the story was saved with English as a data access language but the language was changed to French (Français), the filters will show in Français rather than English. To use this feature, the following option must be enabled in the System Administration configuration settings: Refresh member description for filters.
