Summary: describes how to deploy and configure CAST Dashboards embedded in the AIP Console package.
The CAST dashboards (CAST Engineering Dashboard and CAST Health Dashboard) that are provided in the AIP Console install can be linked directly to the AIP Console, so that analysis/snapshot result data can be made immediately available to end users. In addition, icons will be available in the AIP Console to provide one-click access to the dashboards - no login will be required either:
Please ensure you are familiar with the advantages and disadvantages of using embedded dashboards as described in Install CAST Dashboards - new customers.
The dashboards are provided in the AIP Console installation as follows:
|Release||Install mode||Install instructions||Details||Requirements|
AIP Console ≥ 2.x
|Enterprise mode via Docker/Docker Desktop||Embedded dashboards are provided as Docker containers and all configuration is automatic. No manual changes are required.||-|
|Enterprise mode via Java JAR installers|
Embedded dashboards are provided as a special CAST RESTAPI. This CAST RESTAPI will act as an intermediary between the AIP Console/Dashboards and the CAST Storage Service/PostgreSQL instance(s) where the data is stored:
The CAST RESTAPI is provided in the installation media (alongside the other AIP Console installation media file) and is partly pre-configured for use with AIP Console:
|Requirements are identical to the standalone CAST Dashboards. See Standalone dashboard - installation requirements.|
|Standalone mode via Java JAR installer||2.x - Standalone mode - Installation of AIP Console front-end in standalone mode|
|AIP Console 1.x||Standard mode|
The configuration process effectively creates an SSO (Single Sign On) between the AIP Console and the Engineering and Health Dashboards, therefore when logged into the AIP Console, a user can click through to either of the dashboards and no login prompt will be shown. Users are logged into the dashboards with their AIP Console user, therefore the same user rights apply in the dashboards:
