Sap Lumira Desktop- Input parameters from HANA calculation view

Nov 29, 2016 at 01:16 PM

Dear experts and Lumira enthusiasts,

I am working on a Lumira report which uses a HANA calculation view. In the HANA view I created input parameters. I have two questions about these.

It seems that for a calculation view, Lumira does not support multi-value input parameters, only the first value is considered. Is this correct?

Secondly, is there any way of showing on the Lumira report which input paramaters are used? I know you can see the parameters in the prepare phase and change them by doing a refresh with reprompt. But for a business user it would be good to see which values are used as parameter, for example a date range. Which is important for reporting.

Thanks for your insights!

For the first question, see page 138 of the SAP Help

For the second question, have you considered trying using dynamic text?

Hi Tammy, I can not see the content on the link you gave for 1st question, I'm facing similar problem with LUMIRA Discovery, when I read 'Input Parameters' with Multiple selection option, I get filter on first value in Lumira, If I create Input parameter as DIRECT and if I do not mention constant value, Lumira doesn't pop up prompts. I'm using BI Platform http connection. Please advise.


Hi Abdul - would you please create a new question? This question is almost a year old. I am sorry for your troubles


Hi Tammy

I have an open ticket on forum, I missed your attention at the issue, can you please shed some light on this.

HANA Input Parameters In Lumira 2.0

Tammy thanks for your answers! 1st question: I understand that a multi value parameter has to have the right setup in HANA. I created a parameter which gives the option for multi value selection. Therefore in Lumira I am able to enter multiple values. However in the report I see only the output of the first entered value. I found this about the same topic from some months ago: Sap discussion.

For the dynamic texts: It is my understanding that you can only use measures as dynamic texts. For example my date parameter is not part of the output of the HANA view. The date parameter goes to a lower level of the view (before aggregation) while the data is aggregated depending on the date range provided by the input parameters.
