Design Studio 1.6 / Lumira 2.x bookmarks

Dear SCN-Community

this blog post „Design Studio 1.x bookmarks in Lumira 2.x“ describes the switch from DS 1.x to Lumira 2.x.

Actual I´ve got a DS 1.6 dashboard with 30 portable fragment bookmarks which should be migrated to Lumira 2.x. Currently the following workflow is implemented:

  • User creates bookmarks which are stored in a special folder
  • Small set of users can delete bookmarks within this folder (controlled via access level)

I have changed the bookmark creation, loading and sharing to the new Lumira 2.0 bookmark feature. If an other user tries to delete a global bookmark the message "" appears. Is there no possibility to delete global bookmarks from an other user?

Further I can´t use the portable fragment bookmarks which are created in DS 1.6 although there are stored in the same folder. Is there no migration possible?

Kind regards

    Hi Andre,

    To answer both of your questions:

    1. In my experience, it is not possible to “migrate” DS1.6 bookmarks to Lumira 2.x bookmarks. You basically need to repurpose your application to the Lumira 2.x bookmark architecture and start fresh with new bookmarks;

    2. Global bookmarks in Lumira 2.x are not global in the true sense in that even if a user has edit access to the corresponding bookmark folder, they can only edit/delete their own bookmarks and not those of others. I have documented this important limitation in the following post:

    About bookmarks with Lumira Design 2.1, is it possible to Edit the content of a bookmark?

    I mean, I create a report with my graph, tables, filters. I create a bookmark, and share it to my colleagues with a link.

    If I realize that I forgot a filter, can I

    - adjust my previous bookmark (if yes, how? I cannot find the possibility)

    - or do I have to create a new one (but then, I need to share the new link to the community)

    Thank you,

    Regards, Pierre

    • Hi Pierre,

      You can indeed edit the content of your own bookmark. The steps are as follows:

      1. Load the existing bookmark using BOOKMARKS.load()

      2. Edit the content as desired in the application

      3. Save the updates using BOOKMARKS.overwrite()
