Module Manager Widget

Introduced in Enterprise 7, the Module Manager widget is a beta widget that makes deployment of modules (widget or dashboard) easier for administrators.

Module_Manager_widget

 

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.

 

 

Deploying Modules

 

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.

Alternatively, files can be dragged and dropped  in the upload box.

 

Modifying – Redeploying a module will modify it. The older file gets replaced by the newer one.
