Comments Cube is not sandboxed !!!

    Hello Community,
    We've tried to use PAW comments in conjonction with a sandbox and as the comments are stored in a cube, I was expecting that comments entered in a sandbox didn't impact the "Base" but unfortunately it's not the case :-(
    Is it a bug ?
    Regards,

    Robert, Yoro,
    The possible workaround could be in adding the string element to your measure dimension though it may slow the cube performance.

    Another option could be in creating the additional cube to hold the comments , then you'd add the widget to the book and synchronize between  the selected slices. That second option is often used for the commentary on the budget.

    Both option would allow you to have the comments in synch with the sandboxes.

    Hello Svetlana,
    Thanks for your answer.
    As you're proposing workaround solutions I was wondering if that means it's not officially considered as a BUG...
    If so, I think we'll have to deal with it as it is, even if IMHO it's pretty unclear to see comments on value (and the value appears within the comment itself) which are not even in the cube.

    Regards,

    Hi Robert, 
    Yes, right now the functionality is designed for visibility, if the comment has been added to the cell, then it would be visible regardless of the sandbox selected, so all users would be aware that there is a comment on this cell and could view it.

    Robert, I check that the comments are added to }Cell_Annotations_xxxubename, this control cube that is created upon adding the comment doesn't have the Sandbox dimension so that kept the annotations just as per cube.
