Presenting ProClarity Performance Map Views in PerformancePoint Dashboards

ProClarity Analytic Server (PAS) Performance Map views can easily be included in a PerformancePoint dashboard. However, you may quickly find that the view doesn't render quite as expected. Take a look at the following Performance Map view in the dashboard:


The first thing you will want to do when publishing a Performance Map view to the dashboard is hide the Performance Map setup pane when publishing the view to the PAS server. From ProClarity Professional, right click on the PerformanceMap view and select Performance Map Properties. Unselect the Show Performance Map setup pane option. Save the view and republish the PAS Briefing Book.


Now, refresh your dashboard page and you will see the change to the view. Note, a re-export of the dashboard is not required.


The second option you may want to change, although this one is more involved, is add a Performance Map cache size that will render better within your dashboard view. Notice the grey space on the right and left sides of the above Performance Map view. By default, the PAS server only renders and caches the Performance Maps in 4 predefined sizes. You can add additional image sizes as follows:

Edit the "PTreeViewCtrl.xml" file located here: C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\PAS\en\src

Add additional sizes as shown below, just increase the number of the image. (PerfMap5 and PerfMap6 were added in the file below.)


NOTE: PAS cache must be cleared after this change is made. It may take a few iterations before you find the size that best fits your dashboard view space. Additionally, PAS performance will be affected because we will now create more cache images of the view when initially viewed.  Thus, try to minimize the number of additional images you are adding.


This can significantly increase the Performance Map view in your dashboard.
