Dundas Dashboard lets you install add-ons to provide additional data visualizations, controls and functionality. Add-ons are stand-alone features that you can install into an existing deployment.

Downloading Add-ons

Add-ons are included as part of the Dundas Dashboard Deployment Center.

You can download the Deployment Center from the Your Account · Downloads tab. In order for add-ons to operate correctly, the versions of the add-ons have to match that of your Dundas Dashboard installation.

Installing Add-ons

Each add-on is packaged as part of the Deployment Center:

  1. Install add-ons via the Deployment Center.
  2. After installing, restart the Dundas Dashboard website in order for the add-on(s) to be recognized.

Once your add-on is installed, it will be displayed in the Dashboard Designer Toolbox if it is a Dashboard control, available in the Export wizard if it is a data export add-on, or visible in the Data Connector screen if it is a data provider add-on.

You can also use the Plugin Manager utility to view an add-on's dependencies and other information.


Dundas Dashboard add-ons are often released as-is, without support. You can still report bugs or request features for them, but other support issues may receive priority treatment.

Add-ons that are officially supported will receive our normal Dundas support, depending on your support contract.
