How to publish a dashboard and keep it on auto refresh?

Hi,

I am trying to create a dashboard and want to be able to publish it externally? Is there a way someone can access it without a login? If not, how can I keep the session active with my charts auto refreshing?

Hi Ishita,

Thanks for your email.

The below link will explain you on how to setup publish your dashboard externally, but you need a Multicast licence.

To keep the session alive, please see below for the steps to setup:

Live Streaming of Dashboard can be made possible.

You need to make few changes as explained below:

1. First we will edit the web.xml file whoch is located under <Yellowfin folder>/appserver/conf folder

Open this file in a Notepad editor, and search for Session, then you need to update the value from 30 seconds to 0 seconds as shown in the below picture:

2.

Now we need to make changes to the Dashboard report, as shown below.

This setting should keep the dashboard refreshing for every 1 second and will not ask you to login unless you logout voluntarily.

Hope this helps.

If you have any questions, please email me.

Hi thanks for your response. We do not have a multicast license currently as we are just testing the capabilities of different BI tools. Can you suggest an alternative way in which users can access the dashboard without signing in since it is restricted to three users?
