Hi,

following landscape:

3 BWs with each DEV / PROD

1 DEV/QA BI Platform connected to DEV BWs - 4.2 SP04 P05 with Lumira 2.0 SP02

1 PROD BI Platform connected to PROD BWs - 4.2 SP04 P05 with Lumira 2.0 SP02

Our developers creating the lumx-applications in the Lumira 2.0 Designer on the dev stage (connections to QA-Platform with DEV BW connections).

Now we want to use some applications in a production environment.

Is it possible to use the Promotion Mgmt. for pushing the applications to PROD BI Platform and(!) changing the BW connections to the production connections that are used on PROD BI?

The blog does not give the information we are looking for.

Hi Sascha,

Since you are promoting like-for-like versions in like-for-like environments you can apply the standard Promotion Management procedure just like you would for promoting other objects such as WebI reports for example. Are you encountering any particular issues when attempting to promote your application across environments?

Regards,

Mustafa.

No, we do not face any issues. It is the "problem", that we want to use the productive BI platform for the first time. We had a kind of POC system and for some months a DEV/QA System, where our developer created the first "real" applications.

Now we are at the point, where we want to have it on the production system with the connections to the productive BWs and I wanted to know, which way is the best for just pushing these applications vom DEV to PROD without manipulating all the connections to the systems.

Under promotion management section of Admin guide, look at the Overrides section.
With Overrides you can promote your Designer apps with connection change at the same time.

Hi Sascha,

You should perform the following steps:

1. First migrate your DEV BW connections to QA and then PROD by applying Promotion Management Overrides as described in the following blog:

https://blogs.sap.com/2014/02/12/promotion-management-overrides/

2. Then migrate your Lumira Designer 2.0 applications via the standard Promotion Management process.

Regards,

Mustafa.

Hi Mustafa,

I tried the step by step approach mentioned in the blog but still I couldn't promote the lumira report from Dev to QA. Below is the error message I received:

Commit Status=Commit attempted and failed., Promotion Status=Failure : Object has failed to promote

Could you please help me here?

Thanks,

Rejish

Why do you think your failed to promote status is related to overrides ?

I am new to BOBJ and lumira space, I tried to promote the objects and it fails every single time. I searched the forum and found this thread. I tried these options as well but it didn't work. I thought I can use his help to my issue fixed.

well, you should create your own thread , because topic of this one is overrides, not general promotion issues.
There are very many reasons promotions can fail due to, "Promotion Status=Failure : Object has failed to promote" - is not enough to guess why it happened.
You should review KBA https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/notes/2353430 to familiarize yourself on troubleshooting promotion issues.
