Embed a Dashboard

Learn how to use GoodData.UI or Iframe to embed a Dashboard into your web application.

Embedding a Dashboard gives you the ability to use the Dashboard in your application. You may use it in combination with embedded Analytical Designer to make your GoodData workflow available to your customers.

Embed a Dashboard Using GoodData.UI

GoodData.UI version 8.7 or newer includes the @gooddata/sdk-ui-dashboard package that contains the Dashboard Component that lets you embed your Dashboard using GoodData.UI.


  1. Generate a React application skeleton using the GoodData.UI Accelerator Toolkit.

    npx @gooddata/create-gooddata-react-app@latest --backend tiger
  2. When prompted, enter the application name and the hostname of your GoodData deployment.

    ? What is your application name? gooddata-cn-demo
    ? Insert your hostname: http://localhost:3000
    ? What is your application desired flavor?
    ❯ TypeScript

    The toolkit generates the application skeleton and it will guide you through the next steps.

    Success! Your GoodData-powered application "gooddata-cn-demo" was created.
    You can start it using the following commands:
        cd gooddata-cn-demo
        yarn start
  3. Start the application.

    cd gooddata-cn-demo
    yarn start

    The application starts running in your browser. If port 8443 is available the application should run on localhost:8443 by default.

    Empty application

  4. Provide your workspace identifier in src/constants.ts.

    export const workspace = "<your-workspace-id>";
  5. Load the logical data model and all its entities to the application.

    export TIGER_API_TOKEN=<tiger-api-token>
    yarn refresh-md

    If you are running GoodData locally, you can check the cloud native intro page where the Bearer token is mentioned.

    An output is generated:

    |  GoodData Catalog Export Tool v8.5.0         |
    ✔ Catalog loaded
    ✔ Date data sets loaded
    ✔ Visualizations loaded
    ✔ Analytical dashboards loaded
     ✔ SUCCESS  All data have been successfully exported
    |  The result generated from workspace with id demo is located at src/md/full.ts  |
    ✨  Done in 2.65s.

    Review the src/md/full.ts file to validate the generated content.

  6. Embed the dashboard into the prepared home page. To do so, open src/routes/Home.tsx and update the content to the following:

    // make sure to import styles for components you expect to be on your Dashboards
    import "@gooddata/sdk-ui-charts/styles/css/main.css";
    import "@gooddata/sdk-ui-ext/styles/css/main.css";
    import "@gooddata/sdk-ui-geo/styles/css/main.css";
    import "@gooddata/sdk-ui-pivot/styles/css/main.css";
    // import the styles for the Dashboard component itself
    import "@gooddata/sdk-ui-dashboard/styles/css/main.css";
    import * as Md from "../md/full";
    import { Dashboard } from "@gooddata/sdk-ui-dashboard";
    const Home = () => {
    return (
            <Dashboard dashboard={Md.Dashboards.MyDashboard} />;
    export default Home;
  7. Return to your application in the browser, and click Home in the navigation bar. The embedded dashboard opens.

The Dashboard Component is designed with an API-first mindset - it is extendable and customizable so that developers can tweak and modify the default experience using plugins. For information on a more advanced usage of the Dashboard Component, visit the Dashboard Component usage documentation.

Embed a Dashboard Using Iframe

If you are not interested in the Dashboard Component, you can embed your dashboards using iframe.


  1. Click the Dashboards tab.

  2. Click the button in the top right corner, and click Embed.

Note: The URL of embedded Dashboard looks like this:


Configuration Options

  1. If you do not want the navigation panel listing dashboards to be visible, add the showNavigation parameter to the URL and set to false.
  1. To hide the filter bar, add the ?hideControl=[filterBar] parameter to the URL.
  1. To hide the list of visualizations and other items that you can add to dashboards, add the ?hideControl=[widgetsCatalogue] parameter to the URL.
  1. To hide the top bar, add the ?hideControl=[topBar] parameter to the URL.
  1. To hide the Save as new or Delete buttons, add the ?hideControl=[deleteButton,saveAsButton] parameter to the URL.


If you use less than 1170 px of horizontal space for the embedded component, the Edit button and all controls for saving in edit mode are not displayed.
