Lumira Scheduling for BW

Hello all,

I have some questions around scheduling for Lumira on BW, maybe someone is able to help me:

1) if I schedule the Lumira document to refresh the data set every night, what happens during the refresh with the current data set? is the user still able to work with the Lumira document? just thought that the refresh maybe takes more than 20 minutes.

2) does anyone have experience  how big the data set can be? is cells to much?

3) does the data set also include the BW authorization? If a user with BW authorization only on customer B, does he see the data of customer C in the data set?

Thanks for your help

    In a nutshell, Lumira works the same way as Crystal Reports and WEBI. E.g.; for #1, the scheduled instance would be in history. For #3, on refresh you'd only see the data you are supposed to see.

    As for #2, this will depend on all kinds of variables. I have seen docs with 10 million cells. But probably the best way to approach this is by having a look at the doc, Sizing and Deploying SAP BI 4 and SAP Lumira

    Also, the following SAP Note will be good to consider:

    1931691 - Performance hints for Design Studio applications

    (Pretty well all recommendations in the above will apply to Lumira (as well as CR and WEBI))
