Name Description
1 Force Get Embeds

Boolean value that is used to get embeds only for cards. If set to "true", the plugin will return embeds for all cards, even if embedding was not enabled.


  • Embeds for dashboards is not available in current implementation.
  • We strongly recommend enabling embedding for each individual Card on the Domo side as a more secure and reliable approach. See instructions under Enabling Embedding for Domo Cards.

3 Page Name Specify the name of the page (dashboard) for which you want to get a list of objects.
4 Page Preview Boolean value that is used when getting an image for dashboards. 
  • If set to "true", only the top part of a dashboard will be displayed. 
  • If set to "false", an entire dashboard will be displayed. 
5 Login/Password Specify credentials to the Domo account to be able to view images of objects that are set to "Private" in Domo.
