  • 1.  Embed Web page in Dashboard Widget?

    I may be mistaken here, but I seem to remember been able to embed a webpage in a dashboard widget.  Pretty sure this was possible in the old UMP.

    Looking for a way to embed a status page from another application in a dashboard without having to reinvent the wheel.

    So if I am remembering this correctly in the old UMP there was a portlet that allowed you to embed other dashboards in an iFrame and then you could position this on a customized 'Page' within Liferay to display your dashboards along with external/embedded sites on the same page - there may have been a similar actual widget in the old HTML dashboard designer but I don't remember for sure.

    In any case I am not aware of any way to do this in the current release - I believe there is something on the roadmap for the ability to embed external pages into Operator Console itself but couldn't find much on this with a quick search... I will see if I can dig that up.

    I think that you could do something like this with an observability view - At least to the point of displaying the web page and the dashboard at the same time. They'd be independent but at least displayed.

    Alternatively, the text widget will process HTML tags faithfully so it might be possible to drop a frame and a page link into a text widget and have it display. I've successfully used this to force style attributes on text but not sure if it would work with something as complex as a whole page.
