Lumira ignores language settings for BW datasets

Lumira ignores language settings for BW datasets using a BI platform OLAP connection using SSO.

When adding a SAP BW dataset (Download from SAP Business Warehouse) in Lumira using the SAP Business Objects BI Platform connection the user’s language settings of both SAP BW and the BI platform are ignored. Same situation when saving the Lumira document to the BI platform and executing it there. Language is always English.

When using a local connection to add a SAP BW dataset the language settings are applied correctly.

The OLAP connection used in the BI platform uses a SSO connection to the SAP BW system.

As our SAP systems (both ERP and SAP BW) are only maintained in Dutch and French Lumira users are confronted with technical names (metadata) and only key values (characteristics).

Product versions:

• SAP BW 7.4 SP7

• Lumira Desktop 1.28.5

• LS4BIP 1.28

• SAP BusinessObjects BI-platform 4.1 Support Pack 6 Patch 1


Anyone having the same issue?  Any solutions?

Thx a lot in advance.

Hi Kurt

From KBA 2201671 - SAP Lumira Download from SAP Business Warehouse ignores SSO

SAP Lumira's "Download from SAP Business Warehouse" does not currently support SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence Platform BW connections with SSO.

This is on the product road map, though no ETA.
