This documentation is intended for users who are familiar with JavaScript programming and are experienced with creating dashboards using Sisense.

Use this Getting Started guide to familiarize yourself with the concepts of Sisense’s Javascript API and start enhancing Sisense with custom functionality.

Who can use the API?

Any Sisense designer can extend Sisense dashboards and widgets with the Javascript API. Limiting API usage to administrators can only be achieved using the user role customization feature.

Deploying Javascript plugins to the Sisense installation folder can be performed by anyone with access to the physical drive.

What can I do with the API?

The Sisense web application was built to be easily extensible via the Javascript API. Javascript can be implemented using the following two methods:

  • Plugins - Deploy Javascript code as plugins into the Sisense environment. This will apply your Javascript code to the entire application.
  • Dashboard and Widget extensions - Apply Javascript code via Sisense’s built in Javascript editor for specific widgets and dashboards. This will apply your code selectively to the dashboards and widgets that you choose.

Do things such as:

  • Build new types of widgets
  • Tweak out-of-the-box visualizations to match the exact look and feel you are looking for
  • Fine tune the application behavior for specific needs
  • Apply custom formatting

Here are a few examples from our forums:
