In this post we will present how to embed any website as a widget within a dashboard
This plugin enables the user to embed web content (such as documents, data, websites,images, audio and video files) in the dashboard itself
Step 1 - Download and extract the enclosed folder in the plugins folder:
C:\Program Files\Sisense\PrismWeb\plugins\iFrameWidget, if the "plugins" folder is not there, please create it. If you are using version 7.2 and higher unzip the contents into your C:\Program Files\Sisense\app\plugins\ folder.
Step 2 - Restart the IIS
IIS express: restart the service PrismWebExpress
IIS: Open Command prompt, type in “iisreset” and click “Enter”
Step 3 - Create a new widget, choose “advance configuration” and select the iFrame widget
Step 4 - Define the URL
Set the URL in the Design panel or by selecting a field from the Elasticube. Please note that if there are multiple rows returned from the query, this plugin will pick the first result. This is best used with a dashboard filter, so that the user can pick which URL to view. Once you have selected a URL to use, click "apply" (make sure the URL contains “HTTP://”)
