Embedding Dashboards and Widgets
This article is about getting started with embedded Sisense dashboards. If you’re new to Sisense, check out embedded analytics solutions.
You can embed Sisense dashboards and widgets in non-Sisense environments, such as in your own websites or applications, by concatenating parameters to the URL of your dashboard or widget. Embedding only the Data, Pulse or Admin tabs is not supported.
Sisense offers two embed modes:
- Edit mode: Users can edit the dashboard /widgets directly from the non-Sisense environment. Note that editing is allowed only for users who have permissions to edit Sisense in the regular Sisense environment. Viewer users will not be able to edit the dashboards and widgets, even in edit mode.
- View mode: All users can view the dashboards and widgets from the host environment. In addition, Designer users can resize dashboards, and they can also perform the actions available through the button of the dashboard/widget, such as duplicating and downloading dashboards, and renaming and deleting widgets.
Designers can not make any changes in View mode (including the changes listed above). For Designers to make any changes to dashboards and widgets, the host environment will have to be configured to edit mode.
To generate a URL to embed Sisense:
- Click on the dashboard or wizard menu, and select Embed Code. The Embed Dashboard window is displayed.
- In Mode, select the desired embed mode.
- In Configuration, select the desired configurations. For details, see Embedding Configuration Options .
- In Specify Base URL, indicate your base URL if you have a different base URL.
- Click Copy Code to copy the URL of HTML code. You can copy the URL code to paste into your HTML tag, or copy the HTML code to embed in an iFrame.
The following are the panels that you can select to display along with the embedded dashboard/widget. Dashboard panels: Widget panels:
Authentication in Embedded Dashboards and Widgets
All Sisense dashboards and widgets require authentication. When embedding dashboards and widgets outside of the Sisense environment, usually the use case is to not enforce the Sisense environment authentication, but rather use SSO (Single Sign On) with existing corporate authentication.
