In SAP Lumira, you can quickly create a chart by dragging the objects directly to chart area. To create a chart, the dataset should contain at least one measure value.
When you create a chart in SAP Lumira, it can be used in compose and Share tab for the current session.

Step 1 − If you want to save the chart as document to use it permanently you have to go to File → Save.

Step 2 − Go to Visualize tab → Select a chart type from the list of available charts and add to chart builder.

Step 3 − Drag the Measures and Dimensions on axis of the chart. The text written in the chart helps you to find out which object is to be dragged to which axis.

You can also add measures as a dimension in SAP Lumira. To do this, add two or more measures as dimensions in the chart. This can be used to check how data is spread over multiple axis in a single chart.

Step 1 − Go to Visualize tab → drag measure to measure panel.

Step 2 − Go to Settings and click use Measures as dimensions option.

Once you select this option, measures are displayed as new measure dimension in Dimension panel.

Step 3 − Now you see the Dimension axis, measures will be added to the dimensions panel.

Step 4 – Add a dimension to this chart and see how it works.
