Overview

This article shows how to integrate Dundas Dashboard with SharePoint Online (which is part of Microsoft Office 365). You can embed either the Silverlight Viewer or the HTML Explorer/Viewer into your SharePoint Online site by using Microsoft's Page Viewer Web Part. The Page Viewer Web Part works basically like an iframe which lets you embed an external web page (⪚ your Dundas Dashboard URL) on a SharePoint Online page.

Using the Page Viewer Web Part

Once you've created a new SharePoint Online page, click the INSERT tab to add a Web Part.

Go to the INSERT tab to add a Web Part.

Click Web Part, select the Media and Content category, select the Page Viewer Web Part, and then click Add.

Next, set the Link URL of the Page Viewer Web Part to point to the HTML Explorer/Viewer URL or the Silverlight Viewer URL as shown below.

Note: SharePoint Online is usually set to run under HTTPS. Your Dundas Dashboard URLs should also be using HTTPS to avoid a warning which appears every time you navigate to your page. See Dundas Dashboard Security for more details on setting up your Dundas Dashboard website/IIS server to run under HTTPS.

Link to the HTML Explorer/Viewer URL

Configure the Page Viewer Web Part by setting its Link URL to point to the HTML Explorer URL, HTML Home URL, or HTML Viewer URL.

Configuring the Page Viewer Web Part.


Here are some example URLs:

  • https://dashsvr:7000/HtmlExplorer.ashx
  • https://dashsvr:7000/HtmlHome.ashx

You can also have the HTML Explorer display a default dashboard upon login by specifying the ID of the dashboard using a query string parameter.

  • https://dashsvr:7000/HtmlExplorer.ashx?Dd_ContentId=7bcebd59-d425-4f29-9ea4-73033d50d515

Here is another example URL which is hosted by Dundas:

  • http://mobile.dundas.com/gallery/HtmlExplorer.ashx?Dd_ContentId=ad05eb04-366f-4dc5-bc6b-72feb280f7a1

Once you've configured the link and applied the changes, the Page Viewer Web Part displays the HTML Explorer (or Viewer).

Automatic HTML login

If your Dundas Dashboard instance is using local user accounts (⪚ not using Windows accounts), you can optionally enable automatic login by directly specifying the credentials of a local user in the Dundas Dashboard Configuration File.

See Automatic HTML login for details.

Link to the Silverlight Viewer URL

Configure the Page Viewer Web Part by setting its Link URL to point to the Silverlight Viewer URL.

In particular, you must supply the username and password of a Dundas Dashboard local user account as query string parameters.

Tip: If you require a dynamic connection (&ie; passing in a different username and password depending on the SharePoint Online user), you can create a SharePoint App and pass the required credentials through that app.

Here is an example Silverlight Viewer URL which is hosted by Dundas:

  • http://media1.dundas.com/Dashboard/GalleryV5/Viewer.aspx?Dd_ContentId=1a2e6b06-b46a-4f04-b4b6-402efa56607f&Dd_ContentType=Dashboard&dwUsername=viewer&dwPassword=1234

Once you've configured the link and applied the changes, the Page Viewer Web Part displays the Silverlight dashboard.
