contains a Home page that contains charts with metrics or data about suppliers. Some of the charts are chart components, and some of the charts are external links. The data for the charts that are available as external links come from a data mart.
The following diagram shows how the data mart works.
The data mart service retrieves data from the Operational Reference Store and stores the results in a repository table. When a Home page loads, the page queries the data mart service for the data and populates the charts.
In the data mart service and configuration files, the term
refers to the chart configuration.
To populate the charts that are available as external links, perform the following tasks:
Import the chart configurations into a repository table.
Configure a database connection between the data mart and the database that contains the Operational Reference Store.
Configure the report parameters to include the database name.
