3454850 - Changing color of measures has no effect on story level in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


Even when the color for a measure is changed individually at the composite level, the measure is still displayed in its original color at the story level.


SAP Analytics Cloud (Enterprise) 2024.2.8

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Login SAC;
  2. Go to Story> Create a new story> Canvas;
  3. Go to Insert> Composite> Import Composite> Select the composite; 
  4. The composite will appear in the Left Side Panel;
  5. Select the composite and drag it to the main screen;
  6. The composite loads and shows with the original colors.


By design. The features are partially supported for composites in Optimized Story Experience. 


As per Help Page Restrictions in Optimized Story Experience

  • The measure colors set in the chart's Builder panel aren't carried from the composite editor to Optimized Story Experience.
  • Only the dimension colors and color palette of charts can be kept after a composite is imported to Optimized Stories.

So, it is by design that the measure colors set aren't carried from the Composite to ODE.
