Lumira Designer 2.0 Sp2 - Edit Initial View - Error: Failed to Instantiate data source

Hi,

We are getting an error in Edit Initial View

Scenario

we have a data source DS1 (based on universe), it has query prompt "Initiate Date" and result objects are Initiate Date, Profit Category and Amount, data to be displayed in cross tab.

after passing prompt value in Edit Initial View,getting an error ( refer attached)edit-initial-view-prompt-error.png

we thought it may be some date format issue, but then we changed the prompt to Profit Category which is just string like GFII, WCU etc. but still same error.

again we changed it, before it was query level prompt filter, we changed to universe prompt filter, but still the error is same

We google it a lot but no luck...

Kindly suggest ...

Thanks & Regards

    Hi - does your BI4.x platform meet the Product Availability Matrix standards? https://support.sap.com/content/dam/launchpad/en_us/pam/pam-essentials/TIP/SAP%20Lumira/SAP%20Lumira%202.0/SAPLUMIRA_PAM.pdf

    If so, how did you install the add-on? Are you on BI4.2?

    Hi Tammy,

    Thanks Thanks for quick reply.

    We BI platform 4.2 Sp4 Patch 01 with the support of SAP, yes we refereed the same PAM document.

    Server is AIX 7.2

    First we install on only 4.2 only, we were not able to install add-on, SAP sent us the PAM file and suggested to install Patch 01 ( there patch 02 is also there, but they said not to install)

    Can it be Java issue, but Note mentioned in PAM page no 3 says no need to install JRE, it comes as package.

    Request you to guide us to resolve the issue.

    Thanks and Best Regards

    So did you go to SP04 BI4.2 patch 1 and then install SAP Lumira 2.0 SP02?

    I am also facing issue with Lumira 2.0 SP02 on unx universe containing prompt. Looks like a bug to me. I tested the same on BIP 4.1 SP10 on windows server. Check: https://answers.sap.com/questions/292693/lumira-20-designer-error-on-universe-containing-me.html. Others are also facing same issue in BIP 4.1 SP09 and BIP 4.2 SP03 as well.
