Lumira Designer 2.1: Share composites among multiple documents

Hi experts,

I'm trying to reuse a composite among multiple Lumira documents. The reference works great locally, but when I try to upload the documents to the Bi platform, I get the following error:

"The document uses composites from the following documents:

- TEMPLATE

Only self-contained documents can be uploaded."

I understand the error but it kinda defeats the purpose of a composite.

I can only see 2 workarounds, both of them being faulty:

- Copy / Paste my composite from the other document to the current one: This duplicates my composite, hence double maintenance

- Put all my applications in one Lumira document: The issue is, I can only access one application from the BO Launchpad (the defaut one)

Anybody found a solution to this problem?

    Hello Francois - as this blog says https://blogs.sap.com/2017/10/04/sap-lumira-2.0-designer-composites/ "Composites are available for usage only in the SAP Lumira Documents mode (A new preferred Start mode). A document can contain several composites. But a composite cannot be part of another composite."

    Working locally doesn't sound like you are creating the composites in document mode; perhaps try that?
