Exporting widgets to HTML
You can export widgets by copying the HTML text and pasting it into an HTML file.
About this task
To export a widget, do these steps:
- From a widget on the dashboard, click the down arrow in the upper, right corner of the widget, and then click Export Widget. The Export Widget wizard displays.
- On the Configure Dimensions page, to change the widget size, type the width. The height is automatically calculated. Then, click Next.
- On the Get Code Snippet page, copy the HTML text, and click Finish.
- Paste the HTML text into an HTML file.
Move the HTML file to a web server, such as an HTTP server, before it is published. Note: If the HTML file is opened on the local drive, a message shows that the widget is loading in the browser. However, it does not load until you move the file to a web server.
After the HTML file is on a web server, the widget displays in the browser after it is
published. Note: The IBM® Engineering Lifecycle Management (ELM) server that provides the widget content must have a valid SSL certificate. If the SSL certificate is not valid, some browsers might not display content because of security concerns.
