Create a Data Source for a New Dashboard
The New page allows you to specify a title for a dashboard and bind the dashboard to a data source. If the control does not have predefined data sources, you need to create a new data source based on the predefined data connection.
Click the Create data source… button to invoke the Dashboard Data Source Wizard.
Select the data source type. The wizard guides you through the steps needed to configure a new data source.
After that, you can connect a dashboard to the created data source.
