Google Maps - Adding MapID for Styling

Tim Ficker shared this idea 2 months ago

Hello,

I'm just starting out with maps inside Yellowfin, it's working great, but I was wondering if it's a possibility to add a MapID that is associated to the API key. Google Docs are here: https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/styling

Is this something that YF supports and if so, how/where would I place the MapID?

Thanks,

Tim

Hi Tim,


Thanks for your question!


From the documentation that you've sent through, it looks as if this feature may be able to be implemented via URL/ code, meaning that this is something that you could achieve through using Code Mode and/or Javascript Charts.

Unfortunately, in terms of a UI setting this is not currently possible where you are only able to ad your API key, however, I would be happy to change this into an Idea post to be considered for an Enhancement Request.


Let me know if you have any further questions.


Kind regards,

Simon

Thanks Simon,

I saw that too, was just hoping there was an easy way to put in the MapID. I don't know how to use JS maps and render data from our DB, so I'll go with what I have now. But, an idea request would be great. Looks like Google has made it very easy to style the maps.

Thanks,

Tim
