Dashboard showing chart with edited XML? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey all,

    I have played around with charts, and been able to edit the Chart XML to produce the result the client wanted.  However, they then asked if I could add this chart to a system dashboard so all users can see it...   simple enough request, but it turns out... no, I cannot!

    When you create a personal dashboard (from workplace, dashboards, click New) I can select from My Personal Views and My Personal Charts.  For a system dashboard, you cannot.  You can only select from System Views and System Charts.  Which makes perfect sense, as obviously we can't have a public dashboard using my custom, personal view, as nobody else has it.

    Which would be all fine and good if I could create a chart that has hand-edited XML!   But I cannot!  I can export the XML, but when I try to import it, it says right on the form "system charts cannot be updated"...

    So if I can only add system charts to the dashboard, and can't add edited charts to a system chart, how can I accomplish my objective of adding a customized chart to a system dashboard?

    If that isn't possible, any suggestions for the best practice workaround would be most welcome as well...

    Thanks,

    Dave

  • You should be able to import custom charts as system charts. Can you screenshot the error?

    As you can see below I can edit and upload a system chart:
