I am trying to display a Dashboard on the record detail page, but I couldn't find the Dashboard standard component on the left-side pane. All I got is Report Chart component. So I decided to use this in the place of a dashboard.

But my main requirement is to provide a Filter at the top of the donut-chart for the end user(like on a Dashboard, we can provide one) to filter out the data based on his/her desire. I cannot get this with the Report Chart component. I am not sure if I can build a VF page that holds the Dashboard(with the Filters) and have it on the record detail page.

If not, do I need to implement this completely custom way? If at all I need to implement this in a Lightning component, can we embed a Dashboard with a filter in it? Are there any OOB components(something like <aura:dashboard> ) that can be used? Looking for suggestions.

You can't embed a regular Salesforce dashboard in a Lightning page or in a Visualforce page. About the best you can do is iframe the dashboard into a VF page, but if you want to pass to one of the dashboard filters, that won't work.

If you have Einstein Analytics, it is possible to embed them on a record page.

Another option would be to rebuild the dashboard using VF charting.

  • When I've tried using the Wave Dashboard component to get the embed dashboard, it is not listing any Dashboard in the drop-down. Thus my component is always "Invalid Component". What should I do to get my dashboard listed? Nov 27, 2018 at 0:05
  • You can only embed dashboards built using Einstein Analytics which is a paid add-on. I suspect you built it using standard dashboards. Nov 27, 2018 at 0:08
  • Oh yes, mine is standard dashboard. And I am trying all of these on my developer edition. With this, I can rule out the option of using Wave Dashboard. This is just ridiculous to build something that works on Classic but not on LEX. Nov 27, 2018 at 0:11
  • AFAIK, you can't embed dashboards in classic record pages either. Nov 27, 2018 at 0:13
