In our previous blog we showed the out of the box functionality of Dashboard & Reporting. Next to the default dashboards, you can also create your own custom dashboards. However, before we can create dashboards on this, we need to set up some indicators within our application. In the composer we have to go to the tab Indicators.
There are three types of indicators that you can create here:
- A Dimension represents the grouping on the X axis,
- A Measure will be the value of the Y Axis.
- An Attribute, in turn, will act as a filter.
You can define customer indicators that you can bind to any data objects available in your process. They will become available for reporting alongside with the default system indicators.On the Indicators tab, we can create new indicators.
Let's start with some indicators on the Register Order process, we create a dimension on the PizzaName.
And a measure on the price.
And we create an attribute on CustomerCity
For the indicators to be picked up, we need to publish and deploy our application again. After this we need to create some instances on which the indicators will do their work. We let the application run to gather info.
After this, we open the Dashboard within the workspace and go to the Business analytics tab.
In here we setup a report just like the system report, only now we can also choose from our own indicators. On the X Axis we go for PizzaName and on the Y Axis we select the sum of the price.
Resulting in the following graph.
Since we have set our CustomerCity as an attribute, we can now filter the results based on the city. If we go to Add Filter and make sure that CustomerCity equals Utrecht we can now see the results, just for the city of Utrecht.
In the toolbar, there are three buttons, to reload, save the report or export the data.
If you want to export the data, a csv file will be exported to your local machine.
