Dashboards 4.0: Connect to a new XML definition
Dashboards provides the ability to create a data connection for your dashboard that loads data directly from an XML file, rather than from the embedded Excel workbook. To support this connection, you must set up a server-side process to query the data source and format the resulting XML file based on a defined structure. A sample query result can be generated from Dashboards to use as a template.
In this tutorial, you will set up a data connection for XML data, preview the resulting file, set up that sample file as the data source for your dashboard, and then test the connection by manually changing the XML file.
