Error when editing Lumira 2.0 Discovery data source

I am working with Lumira 2.0 Discovery and keep running in to an error when trying to edit a Universe data source.

I am able to successfully create the desired data source from a universe source. But, when trying to edit the data source at a later time, I get the error "Unable to open document created from another server. Login to the correct server and reopen the document".

The Lumira document has been created in one environment and I continue to edit within this environment (DEV). The LUMX document is stored on the BI Platform and I am able to succesfully open and edit the document itself without any issues.

Since I am early in the development process, both the Universe and Lumira document are going through revisions. It is as if any change to the Universe, then gets the data source out of sync. But, you have to be able to work and edit both to do any significant development.

Has anyone seen this error? Any suggestions on how to get around this? I can't continue to create a new datasource each time I want to make a change to the measures and dimensions used.

I am using Lumira 2.0 SP2

Thanks in advance for any help!

Hello Carl,

I just want to clarify you are using UNX and not UNV? See - also which version of the BI Platform are you using?

Tammy, I replied instead of commenting... to answer your question, I am on version 4.2 SP4 of the BI Platform.

Any insight as to what's going on here? I've done further development and don't necessarily think it is due to a new version of the related universe causing the problem.

I've been working on one document and incrementally adding new data sources and stories. I get to the point where this error reproduces. Along the way, I've taken backups and find also that Lumira will start to produce only partial results for queries that previously worked (in earlier versions).

My data sets are fairly well summarized, the smallest returning < 200 rows, the largest near 1,000 rows. Am I reaching some sort of limit across all datasets for maximum number of cells? I know Designer has the limit of 20,000 rows / 200,000 cells. I should be no where near that limit.

This error is halting much progress... any insight would be very helpful, thanks!


Hi Carl - I would open an incident with SAP support and reference this thread. I can't find anything on this error. Good luck


Will do Tammy, I appreciate the response...

Hi Tammy,

Thank you for the quick response. Yes, I am using a UNX data source, version 4.2 SP 4 of the BI Platform.

This error seems to appear out of no where, but I did notice the latest occurrence was after I published a new revision to the universe in use within Discovery. Up until that time, I have been able to edit the data source and also refresh the document, several times.
