Hi all,

In Lumira 2.0 Discovery, when using BW Live datasource:

1. Is it possible to use BW hierarchies? Even though the BEx query I'm connecting to has hierarchies active, they don't seem to be visible in Lumira?

2. After adding a BW Live datasource, it doesn't seem possible to add another datasource that is NOT BW Live data, e.g. Excel, Universe. Is that right?

Lumira Discovery supports SAP BW hierarchies. Here's what you need to know.

BW hierarchies can be acquired into Lumira Discovery. The BW hierarchies are flattened into level-based dimensions as part of the acquisition process.

The parent-child relationship of BW hierarchies is not supported, but after the hierarchy is acquired as level-based dimensions, you can use the custom hierarchy feature to build the acquired dimensions into a level-based hierarchy. The custom hierarchy can then be used for visualizations.
