eazyBI- Getting started with Vansah

To import Vansah data into eazyBI you will need to use eazyBI’s external data sources > REST API, Data Import.

All of your Vansah Gadgets configured in your Jira Dashboards provide a simple REST API source URL automatically configured with the correct parameters for eazyBI.

To generate a REST API Source for eazyBI, you will need to open your Jira dashboard to copy the URL from the Vansah gadget.

Follow these steps to get started:

1.Install the eazyBI app: First, you need to install the eazyBI app in your Jira instance. eazyBI is a powerful app for Jira that allows you to create custom reports, charts, and dashboard gadgets.

2.Import data from Vansah: After setting eazyBI , you can now add a new data source application. Go to Source Data tab and Add new source application and select REST API application type

Copy the API url from your Vansah Gadget in Jira dashboard.

To do this open your Jira dashboard where you have configured a Vansah Gadget, click on Edit dashboard and then select configure on the Vansah gadget.

Now you will see an option to generate the gadget URL.

Click on the button to copy the link

4.Create reports: With the imported data source from the step above, you can now create reports in eazyBI. Please note that once you have generated the Gadget URL deleting the gadget or dashboard will not impact eazyBI and the URL will still work for the data set.

Copy the URL into the Source data URL section as shown below.

Select GET as a request method.

Next, we need to specify how the requests should be authenticated in Authentication parameters . You need to use HTTP header as an authentication and provide the HTTP header name (Authorization) and Header value (Token).

To create a Header value (Authorization) token, please follow the steps in this article: Generate a API Token

Enter your token in the Header Value

Now enter $.data in the Data path under Content parameters

Click Continue

5. Map source columns

EazyBI should automatically identify the Fields based on the source data. Carefully check the Field name within the first row and check to see the data is matching.

6. Click Start Import in the top right hand corner.
