Community visualizations (Developer Preview)
Community visualizations are charts created by third-party developers that work with your data and can be configured just like Data Studio's default charts.
Community visualizations display data from your data source. Although the community visualization can't access your data directly, you should still be sure you trust the developer of any community visualizations you add to your reports.
Add a community visualization to your report
To add a community visualization, you'll need to know its component ID, which is provided to you by the visualization developer.
- Edit your report.
- In the toolbar, click Community visualizations and components.
- Enter the Component ID.
Be sure to include the gs:// prefix in the Component ID field.
- Click ADD.
- In the properties panel on the right, configure the chart's DATA and STYLE properties.
Enable community visualizations in your data source
By default, data sources do not allow community visualizations to display your data. You can enable community visualizations by editing the data source:
- Edit your data source.
- In the top options bar, click COMMUNITY VISUALIZATIONS ACCESS.
- Select Community visualization access: ON.
Additionally, the data source must use owner's credentials.
