Embedding Chartio dashboards


Integrating dashboards into your application via embedded involves two open, simple, and easy-to-use technologies: JSON web tokens (JWT) and HTML iframes.

JWTs allow you to, in a tamper-proof manner from your end user’s perspective, pass Chartio the dashboard id you would like to embed as well as the values to apply to any dashboard variables. These values can be controlled by your application’s native UI elements to provide robust filtering capabilities.

HTML iframes are a common technology used for embedding third party widgets in a webpage.

Plugging everything together is as simple as placing an iframe in your HTML that references in its srcattribute a Chartio endpoint appended with a JWT.

If you’re interested in seeing a demo or enabling this for your account, please contact support@chartio.com.
