Creating a Dashboard with Multiple Sources

Dashboards can support multiple data sources including ElastiCube and Live data models, which means you can have widgets built on several data sources within a single dashboard. For example, if you have widgets from an ElastiCube on a dashboard, you can add a data set to the dashboard and create widgets built on that data set’s live data source. The widgets from both data sources continue to function independently of each other in the same dashboard. In addition, Sisense supports filtering different widgets based on different data sourceswhen the filters tables and columns (in the data model) are named the same.

To create a widget based on another data source, when you creating the widget, in the top-right corner of the New Widget window, modify the default data source collected.
