I want top display dashboard in VF page.

  1. When I am trying to do it using blank window appear.

    <apex:iframe src="/01Z28000000Hdzo" >
  2. Right now I am doing as per follows.

    Page -

    <script language='javascript'>

    Controller -

    public string getdashboardBlob() 
     PageReference dbPage = new PageReference('/01Z28000000Hdzo');
     Blob pageBlob = dbPage.getContent();
     return pageBlob.toString()  

Using above Dashboard is loaded into page but when I am trying to refresh the dashboard by clicking Refresh button (Standard button present on Dashboard) it gives me Access Control Origin error.

"XMLHttpRequest cannot load https://ap2.salesforce.com/dash/dashboardRefresh.apexp. No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource. Origin 'https://c.ap2.visual.force.com' is therefore not allowed access."

Please suggest if you have any solution for this.


VF Page

<apex:outputText rendered="{!contains($CurrentPage.Url, 'vpsMenu')}">
    <div id="mainArea">
    <script type="text/javascript">
    document.getElementById('mainArea').innerHTML = {!dashboardHtml}


public with sharing class DashboardSnippetController {
    public DashBoardSnippetController(){}

    public string getDashboardHtml(){
        PageReference dbPage = new PageReference('<URL HERE>/<ID TO DASHBOARD HERE>');
        Blob pageBlob = dbPage.getContent();
        return pageBlob.toString();
  • VF Page apex:outputText rendered="{!contains($CurrentPage.Url, 'vpsMenu')}" div id="mainArea" div script type="text/javascript" document.getElementById('mainArea').innerHTML = {!dashboardHtml} script apex:outputText – Dunte'e Silver Nov 30 '16 at 16:39

Here you might find a workaround for your use-case How Can I Embed a Dashboard in Visualforce?

The dashboard embedding seems unfortunately not to be officially supported and you may end up in url- and js hacks.
