Improve Web services to do client source substitutions

Yellowfin integration through web services allows to create client organizations and setup data source connections etc. But it doesn't let us create client source substitutions for that account in the parent organization. This is hindering us from anyone integrating with yellowfin to make the client org creation process completely automated. The idea here is to improve the Web services API to also have a way to enable client source substitution.

Hi Eran,

I might be wrong, but I've been looking through the web services source code and noticed there is one function called "LINKDATASOURCE" which definitely sounds like it might be doing the work of client source substitutions, i.e. linking a client source to the primary source.

Also I have found an example of how to use this function in a jsp, so I have attached it here for you.


Please give it a try and let me know if it's what you are looking for.

regards,

David

Hi Dave,

I see that "LINKDATASOURCE" is in the YF 7.4 wiki, but not in the 7.3 wiki. Do you know if this web services endpoint exists in YF 7.3 or was it a new addition to 7.4?

Hi Jonathan,

it was definitely included in 7.3. It was only the 7.3 wiki that it wasn't included in.

regards,

David
