  1. Introduction
  2. Configuration


This plug-in provides a series of sample data sets for demo charts that can be installed to the Envision Console.

  • When you install a sample data set, the associated Widget and Dashboard are added to the Envision Console.
  • These datasets provide you with a good starting point for becoming familiar with the Envision product and generating sample charts.
  • The sample datasets can also be selected and used in the Business Metrics Policy.

Installation of the Akana Envision feature is required to view and use the sample data sets in the Envision Console and in the Business Metrics Policy, but you can install the Sample Data Sets for Demo Charts feature and connect to the MongoDB database without pre-installing the Akana Envision feature.
