Introduced in Enterprise 7, the Module Manager widget is a beta widget that makes deployment of modules (widget or dashboard) easier for administrators.
The Module Manager widget has three columns that show the name of the module, version, and type.
Name – Displays the name of the module.
Version – Indicates the version of the module.
Type – Indicates whether the module is a widget or dashboard.
The widget also includes a search box for each of these fields. Enter a search term (three or more characters) in the appropriate search box beneath the column header. The display of modules will be limited to the search string.
Beneath the grid displaying the modules, the Module Manager widget contains paging controls for displaying a limited number of modules at a time, as described below.
Arrows – Use the left/right arrows to navigate through pages.
Go to Page List – Select a specific page to navigate directly to that page.
Rows per Page – Change the number of modules to be displayed per page by using the drop-down menu.
Count of Pages and Total Items – This control indicates the total number of modules available in the widget, how many pages to display the modules, and which page is currently selected.
The bottom part of the widget contains an upload box to upload dashboards and widgets as follows:
1.Click on the Browse button.
2.Navigate to the module file to be deployed. The Module Manager widget allows deployment of the *.dashboard, *.widgettype, *.widget, *.dataset, *.sql, *.zip file types.
4.Complete the deployment step by appending "action=deploy" to the Enterprise URL (e.g., https://localhost/equis7/default.aspx?action=deploy).
5.Clear the browser cache. See the Clearing Cache article for more information.
Alternatively, files can be dragged and dropped in the upload box.
Modifying – Redeploying a module will modify the module, with the older file(s) getting replaced by the newer file(s).
Report dependencies and some module-specific reports must be in the EQuIS Enterprise installation's bin folder for use within Enterprise. An administrator can upload a report to the bin folder via the Module Manager as follows:
1. In Windows Explorer, create a folder called "bin" in a directory where there is full user access (for example, a personal folder like Documents or the Desktop, rather than within Program Files).
2. Copy the report *.DLLs into this folder.
3. Right-click on the "bin" folder and zip it by selecting Send to > Compressed (zipped) folder. This folder structure must exist in the zip file, so the zip should contain a "bin" folder after being created.
4. Double-check that the file size does not exceed the site's maximum upload limits, typically 10 MB.
5. Click and drag the zip file into the Upload area of the Module Manager.
6. Follow any additional prompts to upload the files accordingly.
