Developing Dashboard/Viewlets

Eduardo Bello (4401922) | asked Dec 28 '10, 3:03 p.m.

I'm trying to extend and develop dashboard/viewlets using RTC Client.

I was following the steps at .

And I realized that I can't get access to Just as stated at beginning of the page.

My doubt is, how I get an existing viewlet and add some functionality to it (extend)? Like group/details ability?

In fact, this is mainly what I need...To get an existing widget like WorkItem Statistics, with Work Itens query, group them by an attribute (e.g. Team Area), and details grouped by another attribute (e.g. Priority)

Thanks in advance.

Hi Eduardo,

The document you were looking at is meant for dashboard developers to work on the Jazz Foundation and have SCM access, so it won't work for you. Instead, I would look at the RTC setup instructions for extending RTC.

See the link for Ch. 1, Setting up for Java development. on how to setup the target platform, etc.

Then you'll want to find the bundle that contains the viewlet and import it into your workspace so you can work on it.

Keep in mind that there is no official API for extending viewlets in general - a viewlet may expose its own extension mechanisms, but this viewlet doesn't have one, so it's not really supported. (i.e. 'use at your own risk')

Alternatively, if this is a useful feature in general, you may want to request a feature enhancement and we can add it for everyone.
