I'm looking to create a dashboard that has an area allocated for text (html) content based on the current object selection.
The scenario is this:
- User navigates to dashboard with an object selected.
- Metrics about that object are displayed
- Text area pulls in descriptions and images about that object and renders as html
- The dashboard contains analytical content and descriptive content.
The text changes based on the object selected.
The content is generated on the fly by a web service. We pass the object name into the service to return the correct content.
There are similarities to the iFrame plugin, unfortunately that is a static URL. The image plugin is also similar, that is hard coded around images.
The reason for not putting data into Elasticube is that the data is managed by some other disconnected system and is updated frequently thus the need to pull it into the dashboard dynamically and render it in a widget.
Advice and thoughts appreciated.
