Dataset Report Restrictions on Using Dimensions Sourced from Metric and Report Data (Release 5.3 and beyond)
In 5.3 and beyond, Dimensions sourced from Metric and Report Data cannot be used in Dataset reports. To prevent this from happening, the scenarios described below inhibit saving.
Selecting a Dimension sourced from Metric and Report Data when creating new Dataset Report
- On the editor of a Dataset Report just created from a Dataset, in "Dimension it by", select a Dimension sourced from "Metric and Report Data" and save
- Error message displayed at right of setting
- Choose a Dimension sourced from any other method except "Metric and Report Data"
Changing the Value Source of a Dimension that is already used by one or more Dataset Reports
- On the editor of a Dimension already used by a Dataset Report, change the <dimension name> Value Source from any source to "Metric and Report Data" and save
- Error message displayed at top of page
- Revert to the original Value Source (in this example, it was "Dataset")
