Q&A

Q: Hi, what are the steps involved in binding the published project on IIS to your personal hostname and not the localhost?  

A: You can find helpful tips for this on our FAQ page.

Q: Does this tool handle tabular reports like an invoice for an online order being produced just as the user completes the order, or is it based on historical data polled periodically?

A: Yes, Bold BI can be used to create invoice reports. However, we have another product in the Bold line with similar infrastructure, known as Bold Reports, that would be more suitable for your specific requirement.

Q: Does each tenant have unlimited dashboards or is there a separate charge for the quantity of presentations per tenant?

A: No, there is no limitation for any resources. You can have any number of dashboards.

Q: If you change the custom_ui.json and the results are not what you expect, is there a comparison tool to identify what was changed to help undo the problem?

A: Thank you for the good feature idea. At present, we don’t have a comparison tool for the UI. We will log this in our feedback portal.

Q: Is there a price calculator to estimate the subscription cost per tenant? Is there a separate charge for each tenant created?    

A: No, the pricing is flat. You can have any number of tenants in your deployment.

Q: Is there an API available to create a series of tenants automatically via a script?           

A: Yes. We have APIs to create tenants, delete or add users, manage permissions, etc.
