In this document we will learn how to integrate SAP Lumira Discovery into Virtual DataPort as a JDBC data source.


SAP Lumira Discovery is a reporting solution that allows accessing, transforming, and visualizing data. It can read data from multiple sources, visualize it, and then compose stories from those visualizations that can be shared with other tools like SAP Lumira Cloud, SAP Lumira Server, SAP StreamWork, SAP HANA, or SAP BI.
