How to embed a SAP Lumira Cloud visualization

If you want to embed SAP Lumira Cloud storyboards please refer to Public Embedding of SAP Lumira Storyboards
For embedding SAP Lumira Cloud visualization and exploration continue reading this blog. With SAP Lumira Cloud you have the ability to get an embeddable URL for a SAP Lumira Cloud visualization. This URL can be embedded into webpages or used to share as a direct link to a particular visualization. Note that users can only view a visulization link if they have access to SAP Lumira Cloud. If they are not already logged on, then the users will be prompted for credentials. Viewers of the link also have to have view rights on the visualization, which means it has to be shared with them via the regular sharing mechanism in SAP Lumira Cloud.
In order to retrieve the visualization URL navigate to the Info via the options menu.

The Info dialog will appear, which now includes a direct URL link to the visualization. The Link can be embedded in a web application, pasted into the browser or used as a bookmark for easy access to the vizulization. Note, that datasets cannot be shared or embedded using a URL and hence do not have a link in the Info dialog.

Below you can see how I embedded a visualization as an iframe into my google homepage simply by adding the URL that I retrieved from SAP Lumira Cloud.

SAP Lumira Cloud also provides a few optional parameters that can be appended to the URL. For example one can determine whether the viewer of the visualization should be able to edit and save the visualization or not. The table below describes these
parameters.
Parameter Value Description
mode
view or explore
If view is selected, the visualization is displayed without the data panel or visualization panel. If explore is selected, the visualization panel and data panel are displayed, so that the visualization can be modified. By default, view mode is selected.
titlebar true or false
If true is selected, the title bar is displayed. If false is selected, the title bar is hidden. By default, false is selected.
Note: Saving visualization is not possible if the title bar is hidden.
edit true or false
If true is selected, the save button appears and modifications to the visualization can be saved. If false is selected, the save button is hidden. By default, false is selected.
Note: This parameter only applicable if the title bar is displayed.

These options can be appended to the URL using the following syntax: &<parmeter>=<value>

For example, if I wanted to show the title of the visualization as well as allow users to explore, modify and save the visualization
then I can add &mode=explore&titlebar=true&edit=true at the end of the URL. Below you can see how these options look like in my google homepage.

      Hi Sreenivas,

      yes the person accessing the link needs to have a Lumira Cloud account, the visualization also has to be shared within Lumira Cloud with that person.

      Thanks,

      Hi Christina !

      Currently there is no option in the info dialog for a URL.

      http://screencast.com/t/R7ncBzR1

      Is there some change in the features provided by the cloud?

      Please clarify if possible.

      Thanks

      Hi,

      it is working correctly, i just checked.

      You need to click Info on a Visualisation/Story to get a URL - not a Dataset - to get tha property.

      Regards,

      Thanks Henry for pointing out that mistake of mine. Now I am able to view it outside.

      Anonymous viewing of stories would make lumira a much more valuable tool for public, news and other sectors.
