    Alon this is interesting and I think will be useful in the future - however why are these extras being uploaded as custom plugins rather than included in releases? The same can be said for the embed image, waterfall chart etc.

    Great work though much appreciated.

    Dan, thanks for your comment. Actually many of these plugins will be included eventually in the official release.

    One of Sisense advantages is its flexibility and the ability to add plugins without the need to wait for a version release or version upgrade. We some times develop these extensions and prefer to share them right way.  Plugins that are being used often will probably be included in coming releases as well.

    Can't seem to find the "enclosed folder" so that I can download the plugin... Am I missing a link?

    This widget is extremely useful but when a dashboard containing an iFrame widget is viewed on a phone (e.g. mobile Safar) the title for the widget is displayed (i.e. the URL for the iFrame) although when viewed on a desktop browser the title is correctly not displayed for the widget.

    Can I use any filter information from the dashboard in the URL?  In other words, I'd like to pass the current filter to the 3rd party site.

    Hi Doug,

    This plugin is configured to present a static URL, however you can create a pivot table that contains clickable URLs and listens to dashboard filters.

    Please see the below Forum post on how to define clickable URLs:

    Hope This Helps

    The title for the iFrame widget is being displayed (i.e. the URL for the iFrame) in the generated PDF when using the Export To PDF functionality for a dashboard that includes an iFrame widget, although when viewed through a browser the title is correctly not displayed for the widget.

    I've testing this issue under 5.7.0, 5.7.5 & 5.7.7 and it is present in all these versions.

    For some reason the iframe does not display the new link, it leaves it at the stage of sisens ( see attachment)

    Any ideas?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    On loading a dashboard with this widget, the window automatically moves to where the iframe is i.e. if the iframe widget is further down the page, the dashboard view on land defaults to where the iframe is scrolling down the page. 

    Is it possible to prevent this from happening  - i.e. run the iframe in sandbox mode with disallowing "allow-top-navigation" ?

    @Tripit - shouldn't you use youtube link in embed mode? Have a look at the first screenshot in steps section of this post. Maybe that will help.

    We are trying to add an iframe widget and we see differing behavior in running a video full screen if we hardcode a video url or if we programmatically code a field with the url field. When using the hard coded url the full screen of the video works while if we use a field to push the url, the fullscreen video stops immediately after going full screen and in Chrome opens up the frame in the parent full window

    Any clue how to resize image content in the iframe?  My image width is too large for the widget width, but I can't find any plug-in setting that modifies the width properly.  I also tried manipulating the image URL in the elasticube like this:

    But when using this variable in the widget, SiSenseWeb complains with this error: "Error: A potentially dangerous Request.Path value was detected from the client (="/app/"

    Is there a simple setting or script to adjust sizing of images or other content within the iframe?

    Hi Evan,

    I am not sure how your IFrame site looks like and how you add images to it. Usually, making the page responsive   can do the trick. One thing I can recommend is to use width and height style attribute in percentages instead of pixels. Another option is to use the media css tag.  

    Hope it helps

    Back in June it was reported that the plugin doesn't work with version 6.6  I don't see that it has been updated to support this version.  Will this be supported (fixed) or is this widget abandoned?  Asking because I have a use case where it will fit my need perfectly.  Tks

    Does this plugin work with Sisense 7.0? I get a blank widget when I try to use this.

    Update: I needed to use https instead of http for the link.  It works!

    Can you pass sisense filters values to the iframe url?

    Hi, 

    Can you please help with the following issue: I am trying to display https://www.engadget.com/ in the iFrameWidget and now when i open my dashboard, i get redirected to the https://www.engadget.com/ website.

    Also, so far only the Sisense web pages are displayed successfully in the iFrameWidget.

    Thanks,

    Adib

    Hi Christopher,

    You can set your URL in the elastic cube so the value is correctly set to the desire URL. This will make the URL dynamic

     

    Hi Adib,

    Most of the webpage now will block off iframe as a x-origin issue as i mention above (https://stackoverflow.com/questions/20498831/refused-to-display-in-a-frame-because-it-set-x-frame-options-to-sameorigin)

    If the website has an embed option to view the page, I would try to use that in the URL. As to your issue with engadget.com, I am not sure if I have a clear answer to that. It seems like the web page has a detection on iframe and reload the entire page on to is browser. If I get any further information on it I will update you.

    Does anyone use this with hosting of their own pages?  I would like to put an index.html on the server to be displayed in this widget, which worked in pre 7.2.

    Ever since going to 7.2 this widget has not been able to see the page (because everything got moved in 7.2).

     

    Thanks.
