Adding Custom Properties to D3 Visualizations in MicroStrategy 10

Previously, we published a video showing how easy it is to add new custom D3 Visualizations to MicroStrategy 10 in less than a minute. After creating a D3 visualization, you may find that users want to format the widget. Instead of making code changes for each dashboard, you can add properties to the visualization that make it customizable. To do this, you will need an already completed D3 visualization. For my example, I will be using a Scatter Plot d3 visualization that was created for a client. Based on the data they had per dashboard, they wanted to format their axes, add a legend, and/or change the size of their data points.


Adding a D3 Visualization to MicroStrategy 10 in Under 60 Seconds

Now in MicroStrategy 10, any D3 visualization can be added – especially the ones that users have already shared to the MicroStrategy GitHub library.

Can you copy? Yes? Can you paste? Yes?

Do you have write access to the plugins folder on the web server? Okay, maybe not.

But if you do, then follow the steps in this 60-second video to add visualizations that other people have already coded for use in MicroStrategy. If you don’t have write access, still watch the video, and then show it to the person who manages the MicroStrategy Web Server (and make sure he/she knows how to copy and paste).
