2324139 - Lumira multiple logins and prompt screens when using multiple providers / BEx Queries / HANA views


  • Lumira document is created with two or more BEx queries from the same BW System.
  • Lumira document created using two or more HANA views.
  • Refreshing the document in Lumira Desktop, Lumira Server for Teams and Lumira Server for BI Platform requires entry of credentials to the same BW system twice.
  • Data prompts will be displayed separately for each logon, and therefore for each dataset and data provider will display its own set of prompts


  • SAP Lumira Desktop 1.X
  • SAP Lumira Discovery 2.X
  • SAP Lumira Server for BI Platform


  • This is currently considered a "by design" limitation.


To prevent multiple logon screens, SSO can be configured for some of the possible data providers:

As for the multiple prompt screens, this is currently unavoidable - each dataset will prompt the user with a new set of prompts to provide on each refresh.

  • Alternative here could be using an OpenDocument link with prompt variables provided in the OpenDocument URL - refer to the Lumira Server for BI Platform Administration guide for details on how to configure OpenDocument parameters.
