Publish & Deploy Dashboards Programatically RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We want to publishing / deploying dashboards programatically. We are able to create/publish dashboards using PPS web service. But the the deployment of dashboards to Preview site is pending, as we dont know how to do this programatically.

    Current Scenario:- We have a web application in which we integrate the dashboards deployed at Preview site. Now we have several clients and for each client, we will have different connection strings(i.e., different datasources), but there will be only one PPS Monitoring Server.

    Below things we already impemented to dynamically create/load dashboards programatically as per the logged-in company in our custom web application.

    1) Created template dashboards / reports targeting to single datasource using dashboard designer.

    2) Using PPS web service, create datasources, dashboards & their elements on the basis of above created existing template dashboards and their elements. Set datasource on the basis of logged-in company, and publish them.

    The final step is pending-

    3) if we want to use these dashboards in our web application, we have to deploy these published items to Preview site. This is we want achieve programatically and I dont know how to do this.

    Please help in providing any suggestion or recommendation on this.

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    We are integrating PPS dashboards in our own existing web application. This is an internet web application, that why we are not using sharepoint which is meant for intranet scenarios.

    In between, we got the solution for deploying dashboards programatically. This can be done by using ASPNETDeploy webmethod of RenderingService.asmx (which is PPS service).

    Thanks
