Is it possible to have a dashboard backed by a view?


#1

We have several views created for our data, and would like to use them for dashboarding/charting.

Is this possible?


#2

Yes I have several them; you have just to create the view an select it as your source data for the dashboards


#3

hrmmm…weird, I was getting errors with that approach, I’ll poke around a bit more and see if I can get it to go.


#4

@tflinz Are you on the latest version of MapD (3.2)? There was an issue that was recently fixed around views.


#5

We are on the release just before that. so it is possible that’s the issue…we’ll double check a few other things with the views in question and see if we can get it working.

(to be fair, the new version only came out yesterday :wink: , not much time for a maintenance window :stuck_out_tongue: )


#6

There was a bug :ant: (lol) when you applied filters on views, but you can circumvent with workarounds.

Which errors are you getting?


#7

I think our error was related to the view not being fully valid/supported.

(I guess I’ll have to file a separate thread for requesting view-validation before allowing creation, lol :wink: )
