Type Description

A reference to this instance after the operation has completed.

You can use the Web Dashboard for more than a combined application. The Web Dashboard allows you to separate the client and server parts. Use the BackendOptions method to specify server settings for the client dashboard application.

The code sample below shows how to configure the client: to set the server's url and pass a custom Authorization header. Note that the Uri value should consist of a base URL where the Web Dashboard's server side is hosted and the route prefix - a value that is set in the MVC / .NET Core backend.

    .BackendOptions(options => options.Uri("{baseURL}/api/dashboard").RequestHttpHeaders(headers => { headers.Add("Authorization", "AuthToken123"); }))
