Adding and deleting customized maps

The Map chart displays a predefined list of maps for various countries and continents. However, if certain maps are not available in Cloud Application Business Insights, then you can get those maps from your IBM Professional Services representative. These additional maps can be displayed along with the existing maps on the Map chart.

Before you begin

Get the required map files from your IBM Professional Services representative.
Note:
  • Only JavaScript (JS) file formats are supported.
  • Do not rename the JS files. The renamed files are not displayed on Cloud Application Business Insights.

About this task

You can add and delete customized maps from Cloud Application Business Insights.

Procedure

Adding new maps to Cloud Application Business Insights:

  • To add new maps, save the downloaded JS files to the following location:
    $install_dir/wlp/usr/shared/resources/prd/default/maps

    Where, <install_dir> is Cloud Application Business Insights installation location. By default, it is /opt/icabi.

    For example,

    $install_dir/wlp/usr/shared/resources/prd/default/maps/south_africa.js

    The new maps are displayed in the Map to be Plotted list on the CHART tab of the Set Properties window. The new maps are appended to the predefined map list after a line separator and are alphabetically ordered.

Deleting the customized maps from Cloud Application Business Insights:

  • To delete the maps, delete the JS files from the following location:
    $install_dir/wlp/usr/shared/resources/prd/default/maps

    Where, <install_dir> is Cloud Application Business Insights installation location. By default, it is /opt/icabi.

    The maps are deleted and no longer displayed in the Map to be Plotted list on the CHART tab of the Set Properties window.
