Analyzer Module APIs

Details the methods for analyzer.AnalyzerModule, which allows for the deployment and control of Analyzer in a DOM element.

analyzer.AnalyzerModule Class

This module allows for deploying and controlling Analyzer in a DOM element. A global collection is maintained for each AnalyzerModule which is initialized, available at window.analyzerModules.


constructor ( options )

Creates an iframe child of the provided parent element. Also, it generates a URL query string based on the provided module options, plus catalog  and cube, or reportPath. Other options include required parameters, as well as parameters which are provided by Analyzer's JavaScript API. Refer to the API documentation for a full list of supported options.

The Analyzer Module will fill the height and width to 100% of the parent container.

The reportPath option parameter is the repository path to the existing Analyzer report to be opened. If reportPath is not present, then catalog  and cube  must have values to create a new Analyzer report. If all three option parameters are present, then reportPath  takes precedence and the module will attempt to open an existing report located at the path indicated. If reportPath  is not present, and catalog  and cube  are also not present, an error will occur.
