Bold BI Dashboards Embedding in ASP.NET MVC Sample with Embedded SDK

We have created ASP.NET MVC sample with Embedded SDK, here we could listing the dashboards and render the dashboard based on your selection after passing the authorization.

NOTE: The best way to get started would be to read the Getting Started section of the documentation to start using first. The Getting Started guide gives just enough information that you need to know before working on the sample.

How to run the sample

  1. Download the ASP.NET MVC sample from here.

  2. In ASP.NET MVC sample, you could find the EmbedProperties class file in Models folder. Properties

  3. In EmbedProperties.cs, you need to set the following properties.

RootUrl Dashboard Server BI URL (ex: http://localhost:5000/bi, http://demo.boldbi.com/bi)
SiteIdentifier For Bold BI Enterprise edition, it should be like `site/site1`. For Bold BI Cloud, it should be empty string.
Environment Your Bold BI application environment. (If Cloud, you should use `cloud`, if Enterprise, you should use `enterprise`)
UserEmail UserEmail of the Admin in your Bold BI, which would be used to get the dashboards list
UserPassword Password of the Admin in Bold BI, which would be used to get the dashboards list
EmbedSecret You could get your EmbedSecret key from Embed tab by enabling `Enable embed authentication` in Administration page as mentioned in next step
  1. You could get your Embed Secret key from administrator setting section. Please refer this link for more details.

  2. Then run your ASP.NET MVC sample.

How this sample works

  1. Based on the values provided in the EmbedProperties.cs, we would get the user token and validate it then could get the dashboards list from server.

  2. In HomeController.cs, we have added GetToken() method and GetDashboards() action, which has been called when initializing the DOM in Index.html. Initializing the DOM in MVC

  3. When you selecting the dashboard to render, we would authorize the server url by calling the GetEmbedDetails action with provided EmbedProperties values. Server Authorization in MVC

  4. In above authorization, we have generated SignatureUrl with provided EmbedSecret key and validate embed details in Bold BI. Then only dashboard would be rendered in viewer-section of index.cshtml.
