icCube v8.3 version just released includes a new dashboard concept: gadgets!
Instead of adding to your dashboard ’empty’ widgets where you need to configure its query, chart, box and other options, you can create and use gadgets that are ‘ready’ with data and configurations.
Apart from saving dashboard creation time, gadgets can also be useful for exposing complex charts/data to non-technical users. More on this here.
For all the details, check the release notes.
Authorization – a role can define (and override) the Docs permissions → doc
MDX – queries sent the Dashboards application are natively generating tidy tables → allows to limit the number of rows sent and therefore better manage used memory
Gadgets – new dashboard concept, preconfigured widgets → live example and video below:
Widget enhancements – added configurations to several widgets → Table, Pivot Table, Combo chart, Embedded Dashboard widget
⚠️ Important – Dashboard file format has been changed, the former one is still supported → doc
