    • Additional features not related to the MicroStrategy API such as performance, ability to handle data in creative ways, etc.
    • Relevant features unique to the visualization such as ability to show breadcrumbs, cluster data, etc.
  • Object requirements (number of attributes, metrics; required data types)
  • Author

Once this process is completed, your visualization will be showcased in the gallery.

Deploy a visualization

Deploying a custom visualization in MicroStrategy Desktop or Web is easy! It requires only a few simple steps.

 

MicroStrategy Desktop  (10.2 and later)

  1. Download the plug-in ZIP file for the custom visualization to the local machine.
    Note: If you are using Safari, it will automatically unzip the plug-in after it is downloaded. To prevent this behavior, go to Safari -> Preferences -> General and uncheck Open "safe" files after downloading. This is necessary because the File Import function expects a ZIP file.
  2. Open Desktop and choose File -> Import Visualization.
    MacMac
  3. Navigate to the location where you downloaded the plug-in ZIP file and click Open.
  4. The icon for the custom visualization now appears in the vertical gallery of icons on the right.

 

MicroStrategy Web  (10.3)

  1. Download the plug-in for the custom visualization.
    Note: If you are using Safari, it will automatically unzip the plug-in after it is downloaded. To prevent this behavior, go to Safari -> Preferences -> General and uncheck Open "safe" files after downloading. This is necessary because the Upload Visualization Plug-in function expects a ZIP file.
  2. Open Web Administrator and choose Custom Visualizations.

MicroStrategy Web  (10.2)

  1. Download the plug-in for the custom visualization.
  2. Extract the contents of the plug-in to the plugins folder of the MicroStrategy Web installation directory.
    Note: If you are using Safari, it will automatically unzip the plug-in after it is downloaded unless you have changed the preference that governs the behavior.
  3. Restart the web server.
  4. When you open Web, the icon for the custom visualization now appears in the vertical gallery of icons on the right.
