A Custom Dashboard for MarketPlace Solution application

Hello Gurus,

I have installed Thing Planning Register and its Dashboard Maintenance Unit name is "XFW Thing Planning (TLP)". FYI, I have also configured the register fields and created new parameters in a Custom dashboard unit "xxxx Thing Planning (TLP)". 

As a best practice, I have created my custom components in "xxxx Thing Planning (TLP)" dashboard to avoid overwite during the solution upgrade.

I now want to copy all contents from "XFW Thing Planning (TLP)" to "xxxx Thing Planning (TLP)" but I get error "Error saving Dashboard Component. btn_CalculatePlan_TLP exists in Maintenance Unit: XFW Thing Planning (TLP)."

How this can be done any idea? If you know could you please list out the steps.

 

Thanks,

Sid

Hi Sid,

 

Are you trying to have a second copy of the Thing Planning? If that the case, you have the MarketPlace Solution Tools that can help you with that (see print screen below). Dashboards can be referenced, but not buttons as far as I know. All Dashboards are normally created with different suffixes, so having the same button in 2 different dashboard could be done with 2 different suffixes.

 

Like my Home Pages, when I want a second one, I just extract out the Dashboard, give it another name and replace all the suffixes from for example _MHP to _EUHP (My Home Page to End-User Home Page) and reload that dashboard back to OneStream. So, you will not sit and rebuild the whole thing manually. I hope this helps.

Hi Sid,

 

How are you doing the copy? Based on what you are saying, it sounds like your copy have not been updated for all elements. You could open the .xlm file in Notepad ++ and look for the btn_CalculatePlan_TLP and rename it.

Hi Peter,

That effectively means we will have rename all objects. There should be a way to have same object example  btn_CalculatePlan_TLP in both dashboards. Otherwise it is as good as rebuilding the entire dashboard by renaming all objects.
