Restrictions and Limitations

The Web Dashboard created using the .NET Core has the following limitations:

  • OLAP mode supports only XML for Analysis (XMLA) with MSMDPUMP. Use the DashboardOlapDataSource.OlapDataProvider static property to specify the XMLA data provider.
  • If the dashboard or specific dashboard items are exported to PDF or image formats, their content is saved to the Windows Metafile format, which is not supported by .NET Core. To learn how to overcome this limitation, see Manage Exporting Capabilities.
  • Export to image is disabled for .NET Core because of some problems in the Libgdiplus library. See T685212 and T685811 for more information.
