Pinned topic Unable to assign view of dashboard on a custom page/portlet

‏2013-09-03T06:49:48Z |

I am using TBSM 6.1. I have created a dashboard using custom canvas.
I want the dashboard's link on the left under Availability tab so that clicking it may open up the dashboard.
I have created a page for it but unable to select that dashboard as a portlet in that page.How can I achieve this?also the dashboard can be viewed only by tipadmin,I want to assign its view to a group of users,how do I achieve the same?

    you can not select a pre-built custom canvas to display on a custom page.

    to get a custom canvas to display anywhere else than the Service Configuration page, you must add the Service Viewer portlet to your custom page then create the canvas in that instance.  

    in the new portlet instance, select any arbitrary starting service instance.  once the view is displayed, select the Create Custom Canvas toolbar item.  Delete all existing view content and (re) create your desired custom canvas.

      Hi,

      I have created a dashboard using Service Navigation--->Created a service-->Added the canvas in Custom View for that service.Now I have created a portlet with this same service but am able to view only the "Relationships view"(I do not get the option for choosing custom view  while creating the portlet),my canvas was created in custom view.This problem arises for users other than tipadmin.
      Is there a way to save the view definition from Custom view to a specific new View?The Edit View definition option is disabled for Custom View ; that has my canvas present so I cant save the view.

      Regards,
