Overview

In this document I will try to provide an overview on how SAP Lumira is supporting the different elements from SAP BW, such as BEx variables, query structures, conditions, exceptions, ... and so on.

This document is a "living" document, meaning that I will keep it updated as much as possible when things change and highlight the changes with the version of SAP Lumira.

Overall the document is structured in different parts such as support for meta-data, support for variables, support for BEx query functionality.

I am fully aware that there is also SAP's official answer with SAP Note 1869560 but I do think that sometimes there is some more background information necessary.
