Create Bridge

A bridge is a workspace environment where you can integrate multiple reports from different data sources and transform them as required. Each bridge has a data transformation editor interface. This unified interface enables data consolidation, real-time planning and collaboration.

A bridge can be created in two ways: from an Inforiver report, or from the console. Both ways are explained below:

1. From Inforiver Report

  1. Login to your Inforiver visual.

  1. In the InfoBridge tab, click Create Bridge.

  1. Enter a name for the bridge, select the destination folder in your workspace and click Ok in the pop-up window.

  1. Clicking Yes in the confirmation pop-up creates a new bridge. Click OK to navigate to the newly created bridge.

  1. The bridge is created as below and the Inforiver report is added as a source query.

  1. Click on the pencil icon beside the query or the bridge name to rename them. There are also other options to duplicate the query, copy the identifier, and refresh the source as highlighted below.

  1. You can change the layout style as below. Click Apply to refresh the source and save your changes.

To learn about adding further sources to the bridge, please refer to this section.

2. From the Console

You can also create a new bridge from the console and then add source reports to it.

  1. Select InfoBridge from the left-side dropdown menu in the console.

  1. Click Add Bridge to create a new bridge.

  1. Enter the bridge name in the pop-up window and click Add.

  1. A new bridge is created as shown below, where you can start adding the source reports. The steps to add a source are explained in this section.

In the upcoming sections, we will explore more on adding sources to the bridge, integrating the sources and managing the integration.
