Hi Everyone

Today marks the release of SAP Lumira 1.18!  I know there are some early birds as usual itching to get your hands on the latest release and share great insights. I would like to highlight a few key pre-requisites for this release. After reading this blog, please also see Preflight Checklist for Installing Lumira Server from Xing Jin

SAP Lumira Server 1.18 requires:

  • SAP HANA 1.0 SP8 rev 81
    • Make sure SAP HANA Lifecycle Manager (SAP HANA LCM 1.0 SP7 Patch 12+) is installed on your HANA server box
    • Make sure SAP HANA Studio 1.0 SP8 is installed on the administrator's client OS and can connect to your HANA server
  • SAP SAL AFL component - SAP HANA Application Function Library (AFL) for the Self-service Analytics Library (SAL) component
    • On SMP, click on Self-service Analytics AFL 1.0
    • Select SAL AFL rev. 81 Patch Level 2
  • SAP UI5 1.20. 6 - this SAP UI5 library is required due to a known issues for SAP Fiori with HANA rev 81. Lumira Server now uses Fiori administration console for its deployment.  In future revisions (rev 82+), this step should not be required.  This is already listed under the download section of SAP Lumira Server.
  • SAP Lumira Desktop 1.18 to publish datasets and stories

For Lumira integration to SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.1 platform, you need to get

SAP BusinessObjects BI, add-on for SAP Lumira 1.1 (a.k.a Lumira add-on) which requires:

  • SAP Lumira Server 1.18, with components listed above including SAP HANA 1.0 SP8 rev 81
  • SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.1 SP3 or SP4 platform - strongly recommend SP4 to take advantage of the BI platform LCM support and additional data sources supported by universe
  • SAP Lumira Desktop 1.18 to publish datasets and stories

If you were previously on HANA 1.0 rev 74.01 or 74.02, you should be able to upgrade to HANA 1.0 rev 81.

Here is the install component view.
