Administration API Sample Project

Hide navigation
Modified on Mon, 20 Jan 2014 01:51 PM Categorized as Administration



The Dundas Dashboard Administration API allows users to perform administrative functions from an outside application. For more information, see Administration API.

The administration API allows you to programmatically perform tasks that are normally done through the dashboard designer:

  • Manage accounts and groups
    • Create, retrieve, update, and delete users and groups
    • Change group membership
  • Manage Dashboard objects
    • Move, rename, or delete objects
    • Duplicate projects
  • Manage object permissions

All the examples in this article require you to use the assemblies Dundas.Dashboard.Extensibility.Server.dll and Dundas.Dashboard.Server.Integration from the Program Files\Dundas Data Visualization Inc\Dundas Dashboard\{InstanceName}\SDK\lib\Server\ folder. You will also need to import the namespaces:

using Dundas.Dashboard; using Dundas.Dashboard.Extensibility; using Dundas.Dashboard.Integration; using Dundas.Dashboard.Integration.Administration;

How to use the sample project

  1. Unzip the project into any directory
  2. Open the project in Visual Studio
  3. Replace the project DLLs, as described above
  4. Run the project

The project itself should be fairly straightforward. This sample allows the user to connect to a dashboard instance, view a list of existing accounts, add an account, and delete an account. This is a small selection of what can be accomplished using the API.
