SAP Lumira is a tool that is used by the Business Clients for creating effective and engaging Data visualizations such as interactive maps, infographics and charts. Lumira can then be utilized for making stories, investigate patterns and impart those bits of knowledge for the group by utilizing SAP Lumira server or SAP Lumira Cloud. SAP Lumira was formerly called as SAP Visual Intelligence.
SAP Lumira offers trusted data discovery against all types of data, such as personal data, custom data or corporate data, etc. Integrating Lumira with SAP Fiori provides the Business users with agile visualizations and as a result decision makers can discover valuable and instant insights into data. It allows you to have analytical content directly by using Fiori. Additionally, you can create beautiful stories from the visualizations across various lines of business and share it to the other users just by assigning roles to them.
In order to integrate SAP Lumira with Fiori Launchpad you need the following:
SAP Lumira can be integrated with SAP Fiori in three different ways:
SAP Lumira provides two tiles to be integrated with SAP Fiori Launchpad. They are ‘All Stories Tile’ and ‘SAP Lumira Static tile’. Using these tiles you can select a story from the list available there, create a tile and you can share them with your team. Now let us see them in detail.
The All Stories tile consists of the list of stories which can be sorted, filtered and searched. In the All stories launch tile, you can see the number of stories that the user can access. All the stories that are displayed in the SAP Fiori come from the SAP Lumira server which runs on the SAP HANA.
SAP Lumira static tile launches the SAP Lumira Cloud in a new window. Through the SAP Lumira Cloud, you can share those stories that you created, with your colleagues. You can add the SAP Lumira tiles from the SAP Lumira catalog.
Follow these steps to integrate the SAP Lumira tiles with the Fiori Launchpad.
Configure the SAP Lumira Server and assign the roles to the End User and administrator for viewing and running SAP Lumira Stories in SAP Fiori Launchpad.
Assign the technical user role SAP.BI.COMMON::BI_TECH_USER to LUMIRATECH user.
It is used by the SAP Lumira server to communicate with the SAP HANA database.
Also assign following roles to the FIORIADMIN user: SAP.BI.ADMIN:: BI_ADMIN andSAP.BI.ADMIN:: BI_CONFIGURATOR Using the chart extension manager role SAP.BI.ADMIN:: BI_ADMIN, an administrator has the permission to manage the chart extensions. Similarly, using the configuration user role SAP.BI.ADMIN:: BI_ CONFIGURATOR, he has the rights to configure SAP Lumira server.
Assign the data consumer user role SAP.BI.COMMON::BI_DATA_CONSUMER and analyst user role SAP.BI.COMMON::BI_DATA_ANALYST to the end user to publish the data set from SAP Lumira.
Now we have configured the SAP Lumira Server and now we have to integrate it.
Add the SAP Lumira tiles from the SAP Lumira Catalog to the SAP Fiori Launchpad. To do that, follow these steps:
To access the SAP Lumira story from SAP Fiori Launchpad and to create a tile from that story proceed with the following steps:
When you click on this tile from the Fiori Launchpad, you can directly navigate to the associated sales revenue details like below instead of going to the list of stories and selecting the frequently required details.
Rather than launching SAP Lumira from the tile, we can also configure a KPI tile with a drill down to an SAP Lumira story. In order to perform this, implement an analytical app and KPI tile to drilldown to SAP Lumira Story. Select the SAP Lumira story as a drill down in the Navigation section. This can be done in the following steps:
Thus we have seen the configuration and integration steps of SAP Lumira with SAP Fiori Launchpad. Hope this information helped you.
