Connecting to icCube

Please follow the steps below to configure a connection to icCube via XMLA service.

Step 1: Embed the component into your web page

You already have in your HTML page an empty component. If Flexmonster Component is not embedded – return to Quickstart. Your code should look like the following example:

<div id="pivotContainer">The component will appear here</div>
<script src="flexmonster/flexmonster.js"></script>
<script>
	var pivot = new Flexmonster({
		container: "pivotContainer",
		toolbar: true,
		licenseKey: "XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX"
	});
</script>

Step 2: Configure XMLA access to the cube

Assuming the server with the default configuration is running on the local machine, the XMLA service is available at the following address:

XMLA/HTTP : http://localhost:8282/icCube/xmla

Please refer to the icCube documentation for more details.

Step 3: Enable cross-origin resource sharing (CORS)

By default, browser prevents JavaScript from making requests across domain boundaries. CORS allows web applications to make cross-domain requests. Please open icCube configuration file (located at $install/bin/icCube.xml) and edit the following:

  1. Cross Origin filter:
  2. <icCubeConfiguration>
        ...
        <xmlaComponentConfiguration>
            ...
            <filter>Cross Origin</filter>
            ...
        </xmlaComponentConfiguration>
        ...
    </icCubeConfiguration>
  3. Cross Origin filter configuration:
  4. <icCubeConfiguration>
        ...
        <filterConfiguration>
            ...
            <filter>
                <filter-name>Cross Origin</filter-name>
                <filter-class>crazydev.iccube.server.crossorigin.IcCubeCrossOriginServletFilter</filter-class>
                <init-param>
                    <param-name>allowedOrigins</param-name>
                    <param-value>*</param-value>
                </init-param>
                <init-param>
                    <param-name>allowedMethods</param-name>
                    <param-value>GET,POST,HEAD,OPTIONS</param-value>
                </init-param>
                <init-param>
                    <param-name>allowedHeaders</param-name>
                    <param-value>X-Requested-With,Content-Type,Accept,Origin,X-DataSource-Auth</param-value>
                </init-param>
            </filter>
            ...
        </filterConfiguration>
        ...
    </icCubeConfiguration>

Step 4: Configure report with your own data

Now it’s time to configure Flexmonster Pivot Component on the web page. Let’s create a minimal report for this (replace proxyUrl, catalog and cube parameters with your specific values):

var pivot = new Flexmonster({
	container: "pivotContainer",
	toolbar: true, 
	report: {
		dataSource: {
			dataSourceType: "iccube",

			/* URL to XMLA service */
			proxyUrl: "http://olap.flexmonster.com:8282/icCube/xmla",

			/* Catalog name */
			catalog: "Sales",

			/* Cube name */
			cube: "Sales"
		}
	},
	licenseKey: "XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX"
});

Launch the web page from browser — here you go! A pivot table is embedded into your project. Open the example on JSFiddle.

Please visit our live icCube demo to see one more sample.

Optimize data loading

Use subquery parameter to reduce the amount of data loading from the OLAP cube. For example, you have the cube with the geography hierarchy and your task is to show reports only for the one specific region instead of loading all the data. To show reports only for that region add subquery the following way:

{
    "dataSource": {
        "dataSourceType": "iccube",
        "proxyUrl": "http://olap.flexmonster.com:8282/icCube/xmla",
        "catalog": "Sales",
        "cube": "Sales",
        "subquery": "select {[Customers].[Geography].[Region].&[EU]} 
                on columns from [Sales]"
    },
    "slice": {
        "rows": [ { "uniqueName": "[Customers].[Geography]" } ],
        "columns": [ 
            { "uniqueName": "[Product].[Product]" },
            { "uniqueName": "[Measures]" }
        ],
        "measures": [ { "uniqueName": "[Measures].[Amount]" } ]
    }
}
