You have to take in consideration that BI authentication window will be displayed and you need to authenticate to the BI in order to be able to see the report. For sure, topics like SSO can be taken now in discussion, but this is material for other blog.

    Hi

    Thanks for the info.

    So, within this scenario, you have to add each separat document in Fiori.
    Is there any way to have a more dynamic scenario, meaning if you add a Lumiradoc in BI Launchpad, it gets automaticly accesible in Fiori?

    I have seen a “All stories”-tile in Fiori, but i think that was pointing to Lumira Server, not LumiraServer for BI Platform.

    Any insight is valuable

    Regards
    Björn
