How to use Bold BI wrapper inside your html page

  1. In your .html page, you need to add the following dependent script in the head tag of your page.

    <head>
        <script type="text/javascript" src="https://cdn.boldbi.com/embedded-sdk/v7.10.16/boldbi-embed.js"></script>
    </head>
  2. In the body tag, you need to create the div element with your own id name. This element will be used for embedding the dashboard.

    <body>
       <div id="dashboard_container"></div>
    </body>

    NOTE: If you use hyphens in ID, your code may become more prone to errors and be harder to read while using Jquery. Instead, use underscores or camelCase if you are in control of the ID.

  3. In the body tag, you need to add the function to create a BoldBI instance with the following properties, and call that function in the body using the onload attribute as follows. Also, call the loadDashboard() function.
