Lumira 2.0 Discovery - connect to on premise Esri server?

The documentation doesn't really give much away in terms of how to configure this, and it appears that Lumira 2.0 Discovery maybe fails more gracefully than 1.3.x and falls back to the online base maps if it can't establish a connection to on premise.

I found the following old thread, but unsure how much might still apply to 2.0

Is there a KBA that might detail all of the prerequisites in one place, or is that thread the best source of steps to try?

    I can only help with one aspect of that I'm afraid. We managed to get Lumira to connect to our portal, and retrieve the base maps. The base maps are actually returned from the online Esri resource anyway, so its just a slightly longer way around than going directly at the moment.

    The URL we supplied in Preferences was:


    However we are still unable to see any custom map services. We think it may be more to do with our Esri setup though. Note that Lumira only supports Polygon Feature Layers currently.

    As per the details in the original link in my post, Lumira looks at the following locations.

    ESRI Login URl = Portal URL + /generatetoken

    ESRI Portal Self URL = Portal URL + /portals/self

    ESRI Custom URL = Portal URL + /content/users/

    ESRI Service URL = Portal URL + /content/items/

    We haven't managed to even generate a content/items path yet.

    The best we have is


    You should be able to browse all these locations in a browser. Once logged in you should be able to see how all the base maps are defined on the following path:


    In our case they all point to the online Esri server, E.g.

    Hopefully you might be able to test some basic config with that. We're kind of stalled at the moment, and doing other more productive things...
  • Hi

    Looking for documentation, I cant find much? can anyone help?

    what should the onsite premise portal address be the top level i.e

    or the web service layer url from Esri

    when publishing a storyboard with a map, how does the BO know where do gets its map (default online or onsite) is this information embedded from the preference setting when building the storyboard.

    Where are the Esri custom services setup? and how do we use them?

    Should be the same as this KBA

    Lumira Discovery

    Go to Preferences, Geo Map Service

    The screen should appear for you to set up

    • Hi Adam - I read this:

      "Investigating feasibility of providing this as part of a release for future 2.0 Patch. "

      It doesn't state which patch this is provided.

      But I don't work for SAP - so for further clarification I recommend opening a SAP Support ticket under the component "BI-LUM-DIS"
