Lumira Designer: Edit Initial View/Reset Initial View

We are on Lumira 2.0 SP2 patch 1.

We have Lumira designer reports based on Bex queries. Every time we add or remove a key figure or characteristic or change a formula, why do we need to ‘reset initial view’ to see the new added KF or characteristic (s) ?

Here is an example, this particular tab- cross tab is based on Query ZBO_XYZ which is being used by multiple tabs.

We made a change to this query ZBO_XYZ, as a result dashboard got broken, that is the 3 tabs based on the query, were to set to initial view with all rows and columns exactly as we have it in BEx. Is there any way to just refresh changes in designer, to see the new fields coming from BEx instead of it automatically changing the set initial view to the default view?

Every time we have to do a ‘Reset Initial View’ to see the changes in the query.

Screen shot below.

    Hi Vivek,

    I believe this behaviour is by design and it actually makes sense that it works this way. If you have manually changed the initial view of a data source when creating the application and you subsequently change the structure of the underlying BEx Query, there is no way for Designer to know which new characteristics and key figures to include in the columns and rows of your modified view, so naturally it will reset to the default structure of the updated BEx Query. You are then expected to modify the initial view again if needed.
