User Defined Palettes in Lumira


We have introduced a new feature called “User Defined Palette” in release 1.30 of SAP Lumira. Now the user can modify the colors and create his own color Palette for charts.

Two types of color palettes are supported in Lumira

  • Dimension Palette
  • Measure Palette

Palettes can be created from two places:

  • Preferences
  • From Visualization


Creating Palettes from preferences:

User can create his own Palette from the preferences and can set as default to use it for all the charts.


Dimension Palette:

  • Open the Preferences dialog from File Menu and click on the Charts tab.Then click on the dropdown for Dimension Palette

    Hi Vijaya,

    is there anyway to make a central color scheme as you did? I mean I need a css file or something with all color scheme that the company has as standard colors scheme and put it available to all end user so they can install it directly without need to create them manually  as you displayed. Is there anyway to do that?

    regards, Sherif
