IDataSourceStorage Interface

When implemented by a class, represents a storage of the dashboard data sources.

Namespace: DevExpress.DashboardWeb

Assembly: DevExpress.Dashboard.v21.1.Web.dll

Declaration

public interface IDataSourceStorage

Remarks

To create storage of the dashboard data sources available in the Web Dashboard’s UI, call the ASPxDashboard.SetDataSourceStorage / DashboardConfigurator.SetDataSourceStorage method. You can use the in-memory storage (DataSourceInMemoryStorage) or you can implement the IDataSourceStorage interface to create custom data source storage. Review the following topic for more information: Manage Multi-Tenancy.

NOTE

Note that data sources created by end-users do not fall into IDataSourceStorage.

The following example illustrates how to configure the Dashboard control for a multi-user environment:
