Creating a Dashboard
im createdashboard
You create a dashboard through the GUI.
You can also create a dashboard directly in XML. The XML file must conform to a specific document type definition (DTD). For more information, see “Creating a Dashboard in XML”.
Key Considerations
You can define a project filter to apply to a dashboard at run time. Depending on how you design your dashboard, the dashboard project filter may or may not be applied to a dashboard component. It is important to understand how dashboard and project filters work together.
Embedded reports require a lot of memory when the dashboard is run. Using multiple embedded reports in a dashboard can affect performance.
To select charts, queries, reports, principals, projects, fields, and field values in the Create Dashboard and Edit Dashboard Layout dialog boxes, you must be familiar with using the data filter.
