Downloading all sheets as a PDF File

Cloudera Data Visualization (CDV) enables you to download the entire dashboard as a PDF file with each sheet on a separate page.

In the following example, you can see how to download Sheet 1 and Sheet 2 of the dashboard on separate pages.

Before you download the dashboard as a PDF file, make sure that the Enable "Download as Image/PDF" option is enabled. You can find it in Site Administration > Site Settings > Snapshots.
  1. Open any dashboard. In this example, the PDF Export dashboard that has two sheets is used.
  2. Click the (ellipsis) icon at the top left corner of the interface.
  3. Select Download as... > PDF > One sheet per page.

    A Generating the requested file screenshot message appears.

  4. After the download is complete, open the default download folder on your computer. CDP Data Visualization saves the current sheet to a PDF file.

    In this example, the generated filename, PDF Export_20190205142719, has the following components:

    • PDF Export

      Same name as the dashboard

    • 20190205

      Signifies the date the file is created, in YYYYMMDD format

    • 142719

      Signifies the time the file is created, in hhmmss format

    The filename is the same as the name of the dashboard, and it has a timestamp specifying the date and time when the file is created. Each sheet of the dashboard is on a separate page.
