JavaScript API

JavaScript API

The new JavaScript API becomes generally available. Rich in features, the API contains an updated user interface and a richer set of functions and events. You can use the same JavaScript API when embedding Yellowfin content or within Yellowfin in Dashboard Code Mode.

REST API

REST API

The new REST API provides you the support to automate back-end processes, perform administrative tasks and manage content programmatically. Importantly, the REST API also provides access to Yellowfin content for developers, enabling them to build custom turn-key experiences incorporating Yellowfin Signals, Stories, Notifications and more.

Usage across Multiple Tabs

Usage across Multiple Tabs

New configuration functionality has been added to allow you to use Yellowfin across multiple tabs or windows of the same browser. As part of this enhancement, safety checks have been put into place to protect against data corruption and prevents the same content from being edited in multiple tabs concurrently.

Usage across Multiple TabsTimeline Event Cards

Improved Menu for Timeline Event Cards

Timeline event cards that mention analytic content or contain links now have a menu icon. This menu offers you options to open the content in the same or separate browser tabs.

Scheduled Historic Runs

Scheduled Historic Runs

You can now view every historic run of scheduled tasks within the Schedule Management page.

Global Axis Formatting

Global Axis Formatting

You can now specify the Axis Formatting column setting for charts at the admin configuration level. As part of this enhancement, you can choose if numeric axis units will be summarized or define custom formatting. This setting will be applied in charts if Axis Formatting is set to ‘Default’.

Associated Reports

Associated Reports

Associated Reports functionality has been refreshed for Dashboards. You can now add reports as links in your dashboards rather displaying full reports, into both canvas and global containers.

Enhanced Canvas Widgets

Enhanced Canvas Widgets

Action Button functionality has been added to every dashboard canvas widget, making any dashboard widget actionable — meaning an event can be triggered when a widget is clicked. The types of events include: navigating to specific sub tabs, resetting dashboards or filters, jumping to a report or even an external link.

New Action Events

New Action Events

New events have been introduced for action buttons and all other dashboard widgets. These include: ‘Go to URL’ that navigates to an external page, and ‘Go to Sub Tab’ that navigates to any sub tab or slide within dashboards and presentations respectively.

Toggle Widget Menu

Toggle Widget Menu

New settings have been added to control the visibility of widget menus. These can be set to always show the menus, never show them, or only show them when a user hovers on them.
