Online composition drag-and-drop functionality possible in Lumira 2.0?

Hello all,

I built an application in Design Studio 1.6 SP4, with Universe data sources, based on a heavily modified online composition template. The drag-and-drop capabilities provided by the combination of the split cell container and fragment gallery components are crucial to satisfying my users' requirements.

Going forward, I want to move to Lumira 2.0 to take advantage of its new features and fixes. However, as far as I know, neither the split cell container nor the fragment gallery are supported in Lumira 2.0 Designer. So is there another way to achieve the drag-and-drop functionality, perhaps by utilizing Lumira 2.0 Discovery in a way that isn't clear to me right now, or is drag-and-drop just no longer supported?

    Hi Krishna,

    The Online Composition feature from Design Studio 1.6 has been deprecated in Lumira Designer 2.0. SAP's guidance has been that business users should now use Lumira Discovery to build their own stories. However, dragging and dropping from a Fragment Gallery is not available.

    With the new Composites feature, although the purpose is for creating reusable components at design-time, there is no support for developing run-time drag-and-drop style online composition applications with these.

    • Keep in mind that even in Discovery, there is no support for drag-and-drop creation of dashboards at run-time with bookmarks (fragments) like there was for the old online composition feature. Business users will need to create their dashboards at design-time using the Discovery desktop client and then publish these dashboards to the BI Platform.
