  • Searching by description in a Story Filter based on Variable does not work.
  • Only ID search is working.


SAP Analytics Cloud Enterprise

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open a Story in SAC.
  2. Type a description in a Story filter based on a Variable.
  3. Notice error message "Member does not exist".
  4. Type an ID in the search bar.
  5. Filter works correctly.


The search field will use the entered value to search within the IDs rather than the description. It is a by design behaviour.
