Lumira Discovery 2.0 - SAP BW Live Connection: Pause Automatic Refresh

I have Lumira Discovery 2.0 SP02 Patch 1 installed and was working with the SAP BW: Live (connection) Data Source.

Is there a way to pause automatic refresh while using this Data Source? When I add, remove or change a dimension and/or key figure in my story board, the whole document refreshes. I'd like to be able to pause this refresh so I can make multiple updates at once before refreshing the entire story board again.

I am connecting directly to a BW query. Should I be importing SAP BW data instead in order to pause automatic refresh?

Thank You & Regards, A. Cook

    In case of BW Live connection, Lumira Discovery contains only the metadata of Dimension / Measures plus Active / Live connectivity to DB and Whenever user performs any drag and drop operation then only actually data will be fetched and chart will be updated accordingly.

    Unlike BW Live, in BW Import option Lumira Discovery will copy all the data to velocity engine (local copy will be kept) so whenever user performs drag and drop operation data will be fetched from the local copy and chart will be updated accordingly.

    Note - in case of BW Import, to add new dimension / measure user has to edit the data source from the File --> Menu

    So in your case SAP BW option will help.
