Is there a way to cache loaded data locally and reload it into component?

Dominik Crnojevac asked on March 30, 2017

What I am trying to acomplish is to avoid reloading data when loading a new report(if the same report has already been loaded before). To be more specific I have been wondering is there a way to convert the rawData you get from the getData function into a format that can be used in updateData method(inline JSON). Also if there is another way around this I would like to know.
I found out you can pass a slice object to the getData method. So my question is now: can this be done for “microsoft analysis services” datasources, i.e. can you store the loaded data and reload it into component so it doesn’t do the initial fetch?

Hello Dominik,
Thank you for your question. Firstly, we would like to mention that getData method is used for integration with 3rd party charting libraries thus it would not work in your case. Secondly, caching of the loaded data when reloading the web page is not provided by our component.
To avoid reloading of data when loading a new report we suggest you try global parameter of flexmonster() method. Set the dataSource in global object and it will be applied to all reports. global has the same structure as Report Object. Please have a look at the following example on JSFiddle demonstrating how this approach works. We would be grateful for your feedback.

Thank you for your answer. In my case I cannot use the global property unfortunately, since I am using a proxyUrl that changes. I found some ways to reduce loading time with runQuery method, but it seems I will have to use setReport(because of the changing proxyUrl I mentioned).

Hello Dominik,
Yes, you are right, using setReport() API call is the only suitable solution for you.
For now, we cannot suggest you anything more.
Please let us know if you have additional questions.
Best regards,
