How to deploy Chromium Packages manually in Bold BI?

Chromium packages are necessary to achieve image and PDF export functionalities in dashboards, widgets, and schedules from Bold BI. Without these packages, the image and PDF export options in dashboards, widgets, and schedules will no longer be available.

If you installed the build offline or skipped the packages during the build installation, you can manually install the chromium packages. Please find the download link and location details in the following table. Once the download is complete, extract the zip file and copy the chrome-win folder for Windows or chrome-linux folder for Linux from the extracted location.

Operating System Download Link Location
Windows 32-bit https://storage.googleapis.com/chromium-browser-snapshots/Win/901912/chrome-win.zip {Deployed Location}\app_data\bi\dataservice\puppeteer\Win-901912\chrome-win
Windows 64-bit https://storage.googleapis.com/chromium-browser-snapshots/Win_x64/901912/chrome-win.zip {Deployed Location}\app_data\bi\dataservice\puppeteer\Win64-901912\chrome-win
Linux https://storage.googleapis.com/chromium-browser-snapshots/Linux_x64/901912/chrome-linux.zip /var/www/bold-services/application/app_data/bi/dataservice/puppeteer/Linux-901912/chrome-linux

After copying the chromium packages into the specified directory above the table, you must restart the designer service. Please refer to the instructions on how to restart the Bold BI for more information.

NOTE:

  • The locations highlighted above do not exist. Please create them manually and move the downloaded packages.
  • If you are using Bold BI version below 5.1, install phantomjs instead of the chromium package.
  • The Chromium packages do not support Azure App Service Environment and Linux ARMx64. Therefore, image and PDF exporting is not supported for those environments.
