OroDashboardBundle

OroDashboardBundle introduces different widget types and manages the configuration of user dashboards and dashboard widgets. A dashboard is a default page you see after you log in. It is an adjustable view that contains many types of information blocks (widgets) and metrics, such as today’s calendar, recent calls and emails, quick launchpad, etc. You can have several dashboards that serve different purposes and switch between them.

Configure a Dashboard

To configure a dashboard, add your code into the Resources/config/oro/dashboards.yml file of your bundle. For example:

dashboards:
    # Configuration of widgets
    widgets:                                                 # widget declaration section
        quick_launchpad:                                     # widget name
            icon_class: fa-rocket                            # name of FontAwesome class for an icon shown on widget add dialog
            icon:       icon.png                             # widget icon shown on widget add dialog, in case the iconClass is not defined
            description: Text                                # description of widget
            acl:        acl_resource                         # acl resource of dashboard
            route:      oro_dashboard_itemized_widget        # widget route
            route_parameters: { bundle: OroDashboard, name: quickLaunchpad } # additional route parameters
            isNew: true                                      # show or not "New" label next to the title

    # Configuration of dashboards
    dashboards:                                              # dashboard configuration section
        main:                                                # dashboard name
            twig: '@OroDashboard/Index/default.html.twig' # dashboard template (used by default)

To view all configuration options, launch the config:dump-reference command:

php bin/console config:dump-reference OroDashboardBundle

Add a New Widget

A widget is a twig template that is displayed in the desired position on the dashboard. As an illustration, let us create a widget that will display information in the form of a datagrid table.

To create such widget, first, make sure you create a grid using datagrids.yml. Below is an example of creating a dashboard-recent-calls-grid grid:

datagrids:
    dashboard-recent-calls-grid:
        options:
            entityHint: call
        source:
            type: orm
            acl_resource: oro_call_view
            query:
                select:
                    - call.id
                    - call.subject
                    - call.phoneNumber as phone
                    - call.callDateTime as dateTime
                    - directionType.name as callDirection
                from:
                    - { table: 'Oro\Bundle\CallBundle\Entity\Call', alias: call }
                join:
                    left:
                        - { join: call.direction, alias: directionType }
                    inner:
                        - { join: call.owner, alias: ownerUser }
                where:
                    and:
                      - ownerUser.id = @oro_security.token_accessor->getUserId
        columns:
            callDirection:
                type: twig
                label: ~
                frontend_type: html
                template: '@OroCall/Datagrid/Column/direction.html.twig'
            dateTime:
                label: orocrm.call.datagrid.date_time
                frontend_type: datetime
            subject:
                type: twig
                label: orocrm.call.subject.label
                frontend_type: html
                template: '@OroCall/Datagrid/Column/subject.html.twig'
            phone:
                label: orocrm.call.phone_number.label
        sorters:
            columns:
                dateTime:
                    data_name: call.callDateTime
            default:
                dateTime: DESC
        options:
            toolbarOptions:
                hide: true
                pageSize:
                    items: [10]
                    default_per_page: 10

Next, create a TWIG template that renders your grid and place it in your bundle’s Resources/views/Dashboard directory. The example below shows how to create recentCalls.html.twig:

{% extends '@OroDashboard/Dashboard/widget.html.twig' %}
{% import '@OroDataGrid/macros.html.twig' as dataGrid %}

{% block content %}
    {{ dataGrid.renderGrid('dashboard-recent-calls-grid') }}
{% endblock %}

{% block actions %}
    {% set actions = [{
        'url': path('oro_call_index'),
        'type': 'link',
        'label': 'orocrm.dashboard.recent_calls.view_all'|trans
    }] %}

    {{ parent() }}
{% endblock %}

Next, register the widget and add it to the appropriate dashboard using dashboards.yml. For example:

dashboards:
    widgets:
        recent_calls:                               # register a widget
            label:      orocrm.dashboard.recent_calls.title
            route:      oro_dashboard_widget        # you can use existing controller to render your TWIG template
            route_parameters: { bundle: OroCall, name: recentCalls }   # just specify a bundle and a TWIG template name
            acl:        oro_call_view

You can find some additional TWIG templates for primarily used widgets, such as tabbed, itemized (a widget contains some items, for example, links), chart and others located in the OroDashboardBundle/Resources/views/Dashboard directory.

Configure a Widget

Each widget can have its own configuration. Configuration values are stored for each widget instance on the dashboard.

To add configuration, make sure that widget configuration contains a ‘configuration’ block with a list of available configuration values. For example:

dashboards:
    widgets:
        my_test_chart:
  ...
            configuration:
                testValue:                       # field name
                    type: text                   # field type
                    options:                     # field options
                       label: acme.test.label    # field label
                    show_on_widget: true         # if true - value of config parameter will be shown at the bottom of widget. By default - false

To add some config value to all widgets, use the ‘widgets_configuration’ block of the dashboards.yml file. For example:

dashboards:
    widgets_configuration:
        globalConfigParameter:
            type: text
            options:
               label: acme.globalConfigParameter.label

Add a New Dashboard to a User

To add a new dashboard defined in the dashboards.yml file (as described above) to a user, or modify an existing one, use the following data migration:

namespace Oro\Bundle\DashboardBundle\Migrations\Data\ORM;

use Doctrine\Persistence\ObjectManager;
use Oro\Bundle\DashboardBundle\Migrations\Data\ORM\AbstractDashboardFixture;
use Doctrine\Common\DataFixtures\DependentFixtureInterface;

class LoadDashboardData extends AbstractDashboardFixture implements DependentFixtureInterface
{
    /**
     * {@inheritdoc}
     */
    public function getDependencies()
    {
        // we need admin user as a dashboard owner
        return ['Oro\Bundle\UserBundle\Migrations\Data\ORM\LoadAdminUserData'];
    }

    /**
     * {@inheritdoc}
     */
    public function load(ObjectManager $manager)
    {
        // create new dashboard
        $dashboard = $this->createAdminDashboardModel(
            $manager,      // pass ObjectManager
            'new_dashoard' // dashboard name
        );

        // to update existing one
        $dashboard = $this->findAdminDashboardModel(
            $manager,      // pass ObjectManager
            'existing_one' // dashboard name
        );

        $dashboard
            // if user doesn't have active dashboard this one will be used
            ->setIsDefault(true)

            // dashboard label
            ->setLabel(
                $this->container->get('translator')->trans('oro.dashboard.title.main')
            )

            // add widgets one by one
            ->addWidget(
                $this->createWidgetModel(
                    'quick_launchpad',  // widget name from yml configuration
                    [
                        0, // column, starting from left
                        10 // position, starting from top
                    ]
                )
            );

        $manager->flush();
    }
}
