Lumira governance on BI Platform 4.1SP5


According to the last update of the BI Platform (4.1 SP5), we can now add Lumira Governance on the platform without Lumira Server or the BI Add-on.

We are trying to set this up but unfortunately we are not able to make it work. We followed this link

What we have

- BI Platform 4.1 SP5 installed on server called TheServer

- Lumira 1.21 installed on user's computer

What we did

- Add a file in the appropriate folder (.sapvi)

- Contents :






What we get

- When launching Lumira, an error pops up after it tries to connect to the server :

Could not acquire settings from Trusted Data Discovery source.

Error retrieving the Trusted Data Discovery governing data. Unexpected response status from server.

(HDB 14112)

- If useSSO=false in the properties file, we still have the same problem, but after entering the credentials.

Does one of you have any idea of what we are missing here?

    • Does it means that from the architecture point of view ,

      Lumira .lum files are now fully integrated in SAP BI 4.1?

      where "now" means SP05 patch>3 and lumira >1.27)

      and where integreated means manage .lum publication and .lum rights in SAP CMC, upload & view in BI launch pad, + refresh ) ?

      Can you confirm that I just need SAP BI 4.1 SP05 patch>3 (and a lumira desktop 1.28 to create the report)?

      no further lumira server product to download and install? everything is already in the SAP BI 4.1 edge?

    Hi Sylvain - I haven't tried this myself; but did you also follow the rest of the steps listed in 4.6 of the help here

    including adding rights in the CMC?

    In the end I had an answer from the Lumira support, that I paste here :

    According to our global support team, after some additional testing and cross-checking with development, it's come to the conclusion that in order to achieve the following in working order, you will still need and require the BI-Addon for the desktop governance functionality.

    I may be trollling a little bit, but I find it a bit lame. 😠

    The SP5 was advertised with the fact that the Add-on is not needed for these functionalities. In the end it is not true.

    For us, it will be a No-Go for deploying Lumira on a large scale; the Add-on needs Hana and we don't have it.

    I hope this helps other persons who really hoped for and expected this functionality.

    Hi Sylvain,

    Just found your post after I googled for some more information about the latest Lumira Desktop Version (1.22.1).

    I've been experimenting a lot too with the Lumira integration within BIPlatform 4.1 SP5 (without the add-on). I'm getting the same error as you mentioned (Desktop Governance). This is still not fixed in Lumira 1.22.

    Exporting the lums-files to the BI Platform also doesn't work.Without the governance-file I get the error that I don't have permission to view the contents of the folder (FWM 02037). I'm logging in as an administrator so I should have all rights. I guess I need the governance-file at startup but as mentioned, this doesn't work at all.

    I've heard that this might be fixed in SP6 or BIPlatform 4.2. In the meantime I will test 'Lumira Team Server' (which can not be installed on the same server as the BI Platform).
