In Depth Information
No client-side installation is required—diagrams are fully loaded in the client browser.
Real-time data refresh means you can connect your diagrams with real-time data using
various data sources, including
SQL Server
Excel
SharePoint Server Lists
OLE DB
ODBC
Custom data providers
Business Connectivity Services (BCS)
Caution
Note that some data sources, such as sQL server analysis services, are not supported.
Publish once, use multiple times. You can create the diagrams, connect them to data, and
publish them to your SharePoint environment. The diagrams load data from the underlying
data sources, and you won’t have to modify them unless the source diagrams change. When
the data changes, the shapes will automatically reflect the changes.
Various authentication models
3 are supported, including
Secure Store Services (SSS)
4
Kerberos or Integrated Windows Authentication
Unattended Authentication
in this chapter, we will discuss how to connect to a sQL server data source, a sharepoint server list,
and a custom data provider, with examples.
Note
In the first example, you saw how to publish a Visio drawing to SharePoint and view it. That’s one of the ways
to integrate Visio with SharePoint. There are a number of other methods for loading and interacting with a Visio
drawing on SharePoint 2013, including the following:
Visio Web Access Web Part: Use a Web part that can load a .vsdx/.vdw file.
JavaScript Mashup API: Communicate with a Visio Web Access Web Part and change HTML
content as needed asynchronously.
Web Part connections: Connect and communicate with other Web parts on the page.
