    Default Need feature information about the CTools for Dashboard Development

    Hi All,

    We want to use the CTools for the dashboard development instead using the Dashboard Designer of Enterprise Edition as it is quite limited and CTools are more powerful.

    But still we have some questions regarding few features of CTools about that we didn't get any concrete answers on the forums/blog, here they are as below:-

    - How can we localize the dashboard developed using the CTools?
    - How can we reuse the same dashboard for the multiple customers by passing/storing a variable in session and based on that variable we would filter the data in queries for that particular customer and also apply different styling / themes on the dashboard
    - Do we have CTools available for the Pentaho 5.0 and can we use the CTools on the Pentaho 5.0 Enterprise Edition?
    - How easy it would be to add the Analyzer and Interactive report on the Dashboard developed using the CTools and it works/refreshes with other components on filter change?
    - How can we use other charting library like d3js or highcharts on the dashboard and bind them with the data components? Any tutorial/reference?
    - is it possible to add option on the Dashboard developed using CTools so that end user can add/remove chart/report from the Dashboard same as the Dashboard of Enterprise Edition?

    Please guide us in the right direction for above questions.

    Thanks!

    Today we setup the marketplace 5.0 in pentaho 5.0 and installed CDA, CDF, CDE & CGG plugins.

    We are able to create the dashboard using the CDE in pentaho 5.0 but facing two issues till now
    - If we click on the "Apply Template" icons then we get the following error

    [CDE.Util] ERROR: Could not parse json result �[object XMLDocument]�, SyntaxError: missing ] after element list

    - After saving the dashboard, if we browse all files, and click on the .wcdf file or .cdfde file and click download then downloaded .zip files are empty.

    Thanks!

    After installed CTools 5.0 on Pentaho 5.0 EE, Dashboard Designer of Enterprise Editor is messed up. it throws js error and it does not render on the web.

    Thanks!

    That apply template error should be fixed.


    Download and upload of wcdf/cdfde files is not supported in 5.0 EE. It will be available on 5.0 CE and on later versions of EE (probably 5.0.2).

    Thanks for the feedback on the Dashboard Designer issue. We'll look into that shortly.

    So if we use the CTools with Pentaho 5.0 Enterprise Edition and create Dashboard using CDE then how we will migrate these dashboards to production or qa server?

    Thanks!

    You'll need to wait for 5.0.2 to be able to do the full cycle on EE.

    Meanwhile, you can use CE.

    We have made changes to the Marketplace, CDE and CDF to fix this issue. Please update this tools using the marketplace and check if they are still reproducible.
    Thanks for detecting these issues

    In the marketplace. I see the Upgrade button always for CDE, even after upgrading it and "Up to Date" button for CDF & CDA. After installing CDF & CDF two weeks back, I never saw upgrade button for CDF/CDA. Attached is the screenshot of marketplace at my end.

    So I can't update CDF, but updated CDE and Dashbaord Designer of enterprise edition still does not work. Attached is the screenshot.

    uninstall CDF and CDA and install again, please.
    Also, update marketplace itself by downloading it here: http://ci.pentaho.com/job/marketplac...0-SNAPSHOT.zip
    The marketplace metadata is still not the final version, so the up to date and upgrade buttons are still a bit messed up
