How to connect to Cassandra datasource and schedule reports

Pallavi asked on November 7, 2018

Hello Team,
 
We are pitching Flexmonster to our clients who are looking for a lightweight BI reporting tool. This is a great based on its integration with React because the clients using Electron Framework for their application. We have done the POC and it has been appreciated by the client. Can you help us in this regard. 
The client has asked for these three use cases to be added:

  1. Using datasource as Apache Cassandra. 

      2. Scheduling the reports 
      3. Send these reports by emails as notifications. 
I couldnt find this information in the documentation.

Hello, Pallavi,
Thank you for writing to us.
Please find our comments regarding the cases you’ve mentioned:

  1. The general approach for getting the data from the data sources like Apache Cassandra is described in this tutorial
  2. It is possible to export the reports programmatically, the most convenient option is to use PhantomJS. It allows using Flexmonster’s exportTo API call without showing the pivot grid. For more details please refer to this doc: https://www.flexmonster.com/doc/export-and-print/#!phantomjs
  3. After the reports are exported to your side, you can configure the process of sending them by emails as notifications.

I hope it helps. Please let me know in case of further questions.
Regards,
Tanya
