Permalinks

Permalinks

Permalinks in Cisco Unified Intelligence Center are permanent hyperlinks.

Unified Intelligence Center supports the following types of permalinks for reports:

  • Excel Link: This permalink is generated only for grid view.

  • Html Link: This permalink is generated for grid view, gauge view, and chart view.

  • XML Link: This permalink is generated only for the grid view. It is used where the data is required in XML format.


Note


For Live Data reports, you will only have the Html permalink. Html permalink for Live Data reports always require authentication.



Note


Due to security reasons, permalinks from one Unified Intelligence Center cannot be displayed in the dashboard of another Unified Intelligence Center instance.

    Step 1   Click the Dashboards in the left pane.

    Permalinks will work in the unauthenticated mode when the Enable Unauthenticated Access check box is checked.

    Note   

    For dashboards that contain Live Data report, the check box for Enable Unauthenticated Access should not be selected.
