Issue/Introduction

Using a REST API to download a DX NetOps Performance Management Performance Center Dashboard does not return any metric data.

Tried using the following URL:

https://<PC_HostName>/pc/center/webservice/dashboards/<DashboardPageID>

The result is just XML data, no metric data.

How can Dashboard output be obtained without using the Performance Center web UI?

Environment

All supported DX NetOps Performance Management releases

Resolution

The URL utilized with the Dashboards PageID value will return the configuration for the Dashboard in XML format. It will not run the Dashboard and return it's data.

There is no method available for running a full Dashboard in that manner outside of the Performance Center web UI.

The options that exist at this time are:

  1. Submit an Enhancement Request to ask for a new feature in the product that would provide this functionality.
  2. Set the Dashboard to run as a Scheduled Report.
    • Configure it to send the target user an email.
    • Configure it to send the report in the desired format using PDF or CSV as the output.
    • See the Share Data with Other Users Documentation for information on setting up Dashboards as Scheduled reports.
  3. Utilize the Data Aggregator OData Open API tools to run queries and gather the desired data.
