With the release of SAP Lumira 1.27, SAP is moving its auto-update infrastructure to the new SAP Store. Customers who use Lumira’s auto-update feature will notice that the auto-update workflow has changed. IT departments that manage their own updates and customers who get their updates from SAP Service Marketplace (SMP) are not affected by this change.
As always with receiving Lumira updates your visualizations, files, and extensions will not be affected.
While the new store is a component of SAP’s transformation toward simplicity, accessing Lumira update downloads will, for now, require more steps than in previous versions. SAP expects to reduce the steps required in future releases by further building on the SAP Digital platform. Beginning with release 1.27, the auto-update workflow will be:
From the menu Help -> Check for updates
When an update is found, the user is directed to Lumira’s page on the SAP Store. If a Lumira Server for BI Platform or Lumira Server for Teams connection is detected, the user is encouraged to check with their administrator before moving to a new version of Lumira Desktop.
