How to enable network visualization chart icons in IE

For some users, when a network visualization chart is plotted in Internet Explorer, the icons may not display, even though it displays in Chrome browser. See screenshots below:

First note that Chrome is the preferred browser for Analytics and IBP. To resolve this issue in Internet Explorer, please follow these steps:

  1. You must have SAP-icons font installed
  2. Check your security settings in Internet Explorer and verify that “Font Download” is turned on:
  • Internet Explorer Settings -> Internet Options

  • Make sure font download is enabled under Downloads

      Since many corporations have locked hardware such that they cannot install fonts without elevated privileges, SAP has now made a change that results in the network viz icons loading in IE without the manual steps.  Hopefully this will be included in the next patch for everyone!
