This was covered in an ASUG webcast last week and parts of it at Reporting 2017.

On the ASUG side we did not have enough time to cover Lumira Designer; please register for the Lumira Designer 2.1 webcast here.  We did see a screen shot below:

    Good post. Thanks for sharing.

    Hope the SAP Lumira team will eventually be able to offer an enterprise ready self service & data visualization tool from this 2.1 version. Look forward to it.

    Thanks,

    Hi

    Lumira 2.1 was released today the discovery chart features do not seem to be included? When you look at competitor products  SAP need to delivery richer features in shorter time lines for on premise BI Solutions…not all customers are moving to the cloud

    Hi Tammy,

    What about the mobile device support for Lumira Discovery?

    Lumira Discovery 2.0 supports Lumira content on SAP Mobile 6.6 application with iOS 9 and above. However, it is not supported on iPad2, iPhone and Android. Still same or any enhancements?

        Hi Tammy,

         

        we are having issues with Mobile BI and Lumira 2.0/2.1 at a customer.

        Lumira documents (Lumira 2.0 & 2.1 both) are not opening in the app, both for iphone and android. Are there any server side settings that we need to change for this to work?

        Which BI server version did you use to test this?

         

        Best regards,

        Aneeque

          I am using BI4.2 SP05 – that’s where it works.  If you have more issues please post this as a question at answers.sap.com under SAP BusinessObjects Mobile BI
