Direct URLs in Helical Insight 5.0 for reports and dashboards


I am using Helical Insight 5.0 and I want to embed the application within my own web application. Is it possible to have the direct URLs for reports module where I can pre define the metadata somehow or open an existing report for editing, similarly for dashboards?

Thank You,


Yes, you can use the following sample URLs and make specific to your needs. It is always possible to pass the exact path after dir=”” and filename with extension after file=””
• For opening a reporting interface allowing a user to create reports with pre-defined pre selected metadata
<base URL>/#/helical-report?dir=HI_Sample_Reports&file=testing_save.metadata
• For opening an existing report to edit
<base URL>/#/helical-report?dir=HI_Sample_Reports&
• For a new dashboard
<base URL>/#/dashboard-designer
• For editing an existing dashboard
<base URL>/#/dashboard-designer?dir=HI_Sample_Reports&file=dashboard.efwdd&mode=open
You can replace your own base URL of your Helical Insight application instance and your own file names.

Thank You,
Helical Insight.
