The application

Characteristics

The application is the top-level structure in the deployment. It is used to organize a solution.

The application is a set of Dashboards along with the underlying model, computed attributes and data integration parts.

It has the following characteristics:

Name

The application name should reflect the purpose of the application. All characters are authorized, including spaces.

Default applicability date

This is the date that is proposed by default when creating a new dashboard.

Initialize the application

Enter a name for the application. 

Select the creation date of the application. It should be the earliest date at which you expect to inject data into the system. 
The creation time of the application will be used as the Default applicability date for the application, which is the starting point for data capture, analysis, and dashboards.

Once the application has been created, you must then add a least one space and one rhythm to the application.

Generate the documentation for an application

Once an application is ready to be delivered, or during its development, you can generate its documentation in HTML format.

Similar to Javadoc, the generated documentation contains the list of all entities, attributes, relations and their usage.

Two export formats are available:

  • HTML archive – best suited for offline browsing.
  • Single HTML – best suited for printing or saving as PDF.


To generate the documentation of an application in a PDF format:

  1. Export the documentation in a single HTML format.
  2. Unzip the documentation in the directory of your choice and open the HTML file using Google Chrome.
  3. Print it (Ctrl + P) and select the Save as PDF printer.
  4. Click the Print button.

The generated PDF will have fully working hyperlinks to navigate across the documentation.
