We just upgraded BOBJ 4.1 to 4.2 including Lumira server but when I launch Lumira from BI launch pad, I only see one option for Add New dataset i.e Connect to SAP Hana.

We dont even have Hana.

How do I see all other data sources such as IDT, Excel, text file etc etc data sources

Will appreciate your help.

Are you on 1.31? For most data sources, you need to acquire them using Lumira Desktop and publish them to the BI Launchpad. Can you access these data sources from Lumira Desktop?

Hi Tammy,

Yes, I am on 1.31, I managed to sort it out using Lumira desktop

We recetly migrated from BOBJ 4.1 to 4.2 and since we moved to 4.2, I am not able to connect to BI repository when I use lumira. I can not save anything in the BI rep because there is no connection

Please see the screenshot Thanks

That is how Lumira works. E.g.; Launching it from BI Platform, you only have Connect to SAP Hana.

For connecting to other datasources you will need to use the Lumira Desktop.
