The Bold BI dashboard designer connects the Avochato web services through REST API.
To configure the Avochato data source, follow these steps:
Click the Data Sources button in the configuration panel to add a new data connection.
Click CREATE NEW to launch a new connection from the connection panel.
Select the Avochato connection in the connection panel.
NOTE: You can also create a data source from the home page by clicking the Data Sources menu from the left menu panel and Create Data Source from the data sources page.
Once you click the data source, the NEW DATA SOURCE configuration panel opens. Follow these steps to create a Avochato data source:
You can also edit the connection information set using the Edit Connection option.
|Max Rows||Most REST APIs return only fewer data on a single API request. To pull the amount of data you need, set a value in this field. Pagination is handled internally and will fetch the amount of data you need.|
|Refresh Settings||Period of time before the next refresh call is triggered. This will automatically trigger a call for the API configured in the data source to keep the data up to date.|
For instance, to get the specific account details, query or show the Account endpoint.
From the listed information get the ID of the specific account.
Replace it in the URL to query particular conversations:
To get all the accounts details, you need to replace your authid and authsecret in the below given URL
To get all links details, you need to enter your authid and authsecret in the below given URL
Click the Preview & Connect to connect with the configurations set.
The Choose Table(s) dialog opens. The schema represents the key fields of JSON data retrieved from the Avochato Rest API request. This dialog displays a list of schema(s) in the tree view and their corresponding values in the grid for preview. Select required schemas from the tree view to use in the designer and click Connect.
Now, the data design view page with the selected table schema opens. Drag from the tree view table in the left pane and drop the table on the Query designer page.
Click Save to save the data source with a relevant name.
