Hi all - I have 2 questions about publishing my organization's Services Content Pack that I´m currently working on:
I *believe* that all custom visuals have to be published under an open use license, I'll try to dig up the details of that.
Yes, you can select multiple dashboards when creating an Organizational Content Pack.
Thanks for the help,
With regards to the multiple dashboards question, did you mean that you can include several dashboards in a single Services Content Pack (I am talking from a developer / publisher p.o.v here)?
Custom Visuals: it seems to me that so far all C.V publishers are using the generic agreement proposed by Microsoft (Exhibit A – Standard Visualization License Terms)
It says that the user may not:
I guess it all depends on what constitues a "copy" (is it for "within organization" use only?)
I have contacted the publisher (Microsoft Experimental in this particular case) and asked them exactly this question. Will post answer here if I get one ...
so here is the answer I got from the C.V publisher (Mircrosoft in this case: email@example.com)
Thank you for checking with us on this, including our visuals in your content packs should be fine. Thanks for using our visuals and have a great day!
so only 1 dashboard allowed for now ...
see at bottom of this page, in summary of descriptions:
I really recomend allowing multiple DBs in the future as I find that single dashboards with viz from all sorts of timeframes and dimensions have to be so high level that they dont offer any insight ... the DB is then merely a table of contents for the various reports.
As you know, customized content packs currently require a single report and dataset per content pack. If you want to pack more than one datasets or reports in the content pack, I would suggest you use organizational content packs, which can be also shared with other users. For more information, please refer to links below:
If you have nay question, please feel free to ask.
Thank you for your reply,
1 dataset/pack + 1 report/pack is fine ... but only 1 dashbord is very limited.
We cant use Organizational Content Packs as we are not within our customer´s tennant.
We are a 3rd party and want to publish a Services Content Pack (like the ones for for Google analytics and Salesforce) for the customers/users of our software.
