Accessing the data binding

Starting with Alpana v3.0.0, all Widget data binding happens in the data panel on the left of the Widgets activity :

Widget data

Folding / Unfolding sections

Different parts of the data binding interface are grouped into sections.
For better readability, each section can be :
… folded …

widget category data fold

… and un-folded :

widget category data unfold

Data binding workflow

The data binding should read like a sentence :
> From My Data Source, Show My Aggregated Measure Field Group By My Dimension Field.

From : Data Source selector

This is where you will select the Data Source to bind to this Widget.

(see chapter Selecting a Data Source)

Show : Quantities

This is where you will configure the KPI : what quantity you want to visualize.
This will be an aggregated Measure.

(see chapter Configuring the aggregation of number fields and chapter Binding a data field)

Group : Context

This is where you will define what context you will use to group data together.
This will be an un-aggregated Dimension with unique separate values.

(see chapter Configure the grouping of category fields and chapter Binding a data field)
