Downloading current sheet as a PDF file

Cloudera Data Visualization enables you to download the current sheet of a dashboard as a PDF file with all visuals in the current sheet on one page.

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.
  2. Click the (ellipsis) icon at the top left corner of the interface.
  3. Select Download as... > PDF > Current Sheet.

    A Generating the requested file message appears.

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

    In this example, the generated filename, PDF Export_20190205135933, has the following components:

    • PDF Export

      Same name as the dashboard

    • 20190205

      Signifies the date the file is created, in YYYYMMDD format

    • 135933

      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.

  5. Optional: All visuals in the current sheet (Sheet 1) are on one page. Repeat the preceding steps to download Sheet 2.
