Reproducing the Issue

  1. In HANA Studio, create a View.
  2. Add a variable to the View, and set a default value.
  3. When viewing the HANA View in HANA Studio, it displays a default value for the variable.
  4. In Lumira Desktop, create a document off the same HANA View.
  5. When refreshing the Lumira document, it prompts for the HANA View variable, but it does not displays the default value for the variable.


  • Default variables values defined in an HANA View, are not supported in Lumira Desktop. This is why it does not display the default variable value in Lumira Desktop.
