Lumira Filter - Partial Value

Nov 29, 2017 at 05:43 PM

In a basic visualization, I have too many values to show all in the filter box. I used to be able to search with a partial name and the results would include everything with that partial.

Now, when I search, I am not seeing any results.

Am I incorrectly searching, or is there a setting that I have incorrect?

Thanks in advance.

Tim: this is strange. I can't recreate it. What is your version of Lumira Discovery? What is your data source?

Source is an SAP Universe

I still can't replicate this with a universe; which version/SP of BI4.x are you using?


My IT thought it was another issue, so I dont have it solved yet. We are on 4.2

I tried to filter on an Excel data source and had the same issue, but it appears to work when all of the possible values are visible.

Hi Tim - which SP of BI4.2? I tested it with BI4.2 SP4 and there were no issues


SAP BusinessObjects BI Platform 4.2 Support Pack 4 Patch 3



The above is a text file that I created with 500+ lines. When I try to search on a random number, I get the same error as shown above.

Hello Tim,

please have a look into SAP note 2565019 .

Kind regards,



I'm not exactly sure what that means. Can you help direct me where to find that?


I dont have access to that note because I am only a P-USER and not an S-USER...


According to the SAP note 2565019 this behavior is a bug and will be fixed in release 2.1 .
