Is it possible to add new data source to Lumira Server?

At first, I want to apologize for this question, I'm not an Lumira expert. As a Basis guy I just installed the Lumira Server on top of our BI system (BOBIP 4.1 SP7).

The question comes from a Consultant that is asking me to install more sources like Excel, TXT, BW and so on to the Lumira Server because HANA is the only source available.

As long as I know from my investigation, this kind of datasets using different sources like Excel are done using Lumira Desktop and then it is published to others trough Lumira Server, not creating the datasets directly from the server. Is this correct or not?

In Lumira Desktop there are more sources like the mentioned before (xls, txt, BW and so) but they are not available in Lumira Server.

After looking around in the Marketplace, I don't find this sources under Lumira Server User Guide or under software download pages. Am I wrong or Lumira Server does not have this options?

Thanks for your help.

Yes, HANA is the only source available via BIP. No way to add other datasources. To connect to other datasources, you must use the Lumira Client.
