I’m heaving some problems to do a RUMSUN without an atribute Date. I’m trying to do it with an atribute of mt products:

Basicaly i’m trying to an RUNSUM of that valeu for each product. The only way i could make summing all of then, but i need sum for after another.

I know i can make this if the accumulate direct on the report but i need to make the metric.

Does anyone knows how to code this? i tried many ways but none works.


Thank you!

I'm terribly sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but there is no workaround that would allow this. The RUNSUM can only be used with "Dates" and not other attributes.

So non date atributos is not possible? I work doing this way that you mention, but i needed the metric tô then make a percentenge and use in a pareto relativo of 80/20. Basicaly Thats why i need to make a runsum and acumulate the valeus of my sell by products.

There is no way to be done?


Thanks for you answer

Hi Thiago, 

Running total metrics can be broken down by two or more date attributes from the same date dimension. Non-date attributes are not supported. This is mentioned in our documentation here: Running Totals for Core Functions - Gooddata Free. It is however possible, to right click an attribute so you will have the option to use the Runsum function even with a non date attribute.


Best regards,
