Create a single chart that can serve a multitenant application and make chart data client specific

I have created my first mongoDB chart from my Notes collection. Our Notes collection has a clientID. I would like to create this generic chart that can be used by all clients. How can I configure the chart so that chart viewers(users) of one client are not able to view data of another client?

I don’t want to create one chart per client.

Hi @Rickson_Menezes -

Thanks for using Charts! Within the main Charts application, while you can use dashboard filtering to filter all charts by a specific client ID, there isn’t a way to force specific people to use specific filters.

However this feature does exist when you use Embedding in Authenticated mode. There is a feature called Injected Filters, whereby you can use information in the JWT token from each user to apply appropriate filters to the embedded charts. For details see Filter Embedded Charts — MongoDB Charts.

Let me know if this will work for you!

Hi Tom,

Thanks for the quick response. This will work for us.

Is there a way to also restrict the chart author to only see data of his own client (clientID 3) while chart is being created on his dashboard? Our data(datasource) has data of all clients(say, ID 3,4,5,6) but we’d like to give permission to one client create charts only for his own client and another chart author to be able to create charts of his own data(say clientID 4)

Thanks,

Rickson

Unfortunately there isn’t a way of forcing filters on chart authors. We do have longer term plans to provide more granular permissions, and we will take your requirement into account.
