TL;DR

  • If you are on Lumira Designer 2.0 SP02, please download updated open source extensions here.
  • If you have a new problem starting in Lumira Designer 2.0 SP02 with the components, report them on GitHub Issues here.

  • If you are on Design Studio 1.6, you can continue to use your old download link (referenced below.)

Background

Now that Lumira Designer 2.0 SP02 is GA, some of you may be trying to install the older SCN Design Studio 1.6 SDK Components that you were using in Design Studio.  For the most part, these are technically compatible without any effort.  However, there are now some subtle changes to the BI Action Language engine that have broken some things.  While I tested as much as I could during earlier betas, it is a big job to do, so inevitably I’ve missed some things.  I’m happy to correct anything that has been missed in Lumira Designer 2.0 going forward.

What’s Been Going On?

It’s been a quiet year around SCN.  I’ve not been as motivated to release any new features because of the looming 2.0 release, and wanting to avoid any potential additional regression/rework.  I’ve had some amount of “writer’s block” where I’ve not been able to think of something new to throw together.  Also, being a Dad takes more time as kids get older.  Also I’ve been playing too much Overwatch 🙂

Fellow SDKer Karol Kalisz has been a major contributor to the existing SDK content, however as time goes on, our priorities, roles, personal interests and professional assignments change.  As a result, he’s been also noticeably absent lately.

Since Karol has previously been key in ensuring that releases do not wither into too much disrepair, it’s critical that someone carry the torch to not leave anyone high and dry with Lumira Designer 2.0 regressions.

For this reason, some housekeeping changes are in order, that I am going to take on and will mention below.

Mini-FAQ:

  • New Download Link

    Instead of trying to maintain one package that can support Design Studio 1.6 and Lumira Designer 2.0, as well as just making a “clean break” in some ways from the old branding name, we have a new download link for Lumira Designer 2.0:

    Download Link

    This new download package will free us up to operate with any future SDK enhancements as a logical break from the 1.x designs.

    (Note, all extensions you had in 1.6 are still available, and will be maintained here, not the old download.)

  • Help, something stopped working in Lumira Designer 2.0!

    You’re almost in the right place!  Please log any bugs in the Issues page on GitHub.  It’s a better way to track issues than in blog comments on SCN.

    GitHub Issues

  • Help, I don’t know what Component X does!

    Please place a comment below!  Someone else might have the same question!


If you are not an SDK developer, you need not read further, the rest of this blog is now about some technical source code changes.

New Source Code Repository

For those of you who want the Eclipse Source Code projects, I’ve also set up a new GitHub Repository here:

https://github.com/org-scn-design-studio-community/lumiradesignercommunityext_src

For reference, the old source code repository was here:

https://github.com/org-scn-design-studio-community/sdkpackage

The old repository will remain as-is and meant for Design Studio 1.6 only.  All new development and source code will be published in the new repository ‘lumiradesignercommunityext_src

    Mike, I was trying to figure out how to use the Vega chart, do you know if anyone has written anything about how to use it yet?  Also, thanks for getting this all setup and usable in 2.0.

      Hey Brent,

      I am finishing up Vega and Vega-Lite extensions and there will be an update and blog with documentation on its usage in a week or so.

    Hi Mike,

    Lumira Designer 2.0 SP02 Extensions link is not working. It says “No server to handle the request”. Also, i am using the Lumira Designer 2.0 SP01. Will this SDK extensions work for SP01 as well?

     

    Waiting for your reply.

    Thanks in Advance.

     

    Regards,

    Chandra.

      Hi Chandra,

      It looks like GitHub is having intermittent HTTP 500 issues this morning unrelated to extensions when trying to download files raw.  Try downloading again later.

    Hi Mike,

     

    is there a Component like the UI5 MultiComboBox?

    i can’t currently select multiple values in a drop-down Box.

     

    any Idea? thank you

    Hi Mike,

    Do you know if SAP or any other vendors hold SDK development trainings?  We have customers that have unique dashboard requirements that we couldn’t find in some of the SDKs out there (i.e. we’re looking at charts that could display data from calculations done in the backend or through JavaScript).  The only way to circumvent this problem is to learn how to develop some of our charts/metrics ourselves.  I was curious if you know of any formal training for SDK development?  Thanks for your input.

    Hi Mike,

    In lumira designer when i have downloaded the org.scn community basics SDK, donut was not part of the  compoenents..Do we have any alternative approach to get donut in to lumira designer?

      Hi Matt,

      Only reason is why i did not considered using  lumira inbuilt donut is we are migrating the dasboard from design studio to lumira..In design studio we have used SDK donut and during migration donut is getting rejected because it is not supported in sapui5m mode..Migration process without SDK donut will break of scripting and we have to follow some manual corrections in the scripting…However i have resolved the issue by using lumira donut however i need to trick the donut using css on text box to adjust the donut to bit more thinner from cosmetic point of view and then i have adjusted the broken java script code which caused some manual corrections but managed :)…

    Hi Mike

    Thanks for the blog. We are havin issues with most of our old DesignStudio Reports after converting them. All of them are using the Component Manager. Is there a known issue and do you have any suggestions on how to try to solve this?
