Alternative Spreadsheet automatic sync Option?

Thu Oct 19, 2017 3:59 pm

Good Morning Highcharts,

We are currently using the Highcharts cloud product for one of our websites (via the Google spreadsheet sync option). Recently, our data security team is encouraging us to avoid using external applications to manage data (even though this data will be made public eventually) so we were wondering if we can get some assistance.

Is there an alternative option other than Google spreadsheet that can sync/auto-update? We really love using Highcharts and would love to continue to use it so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Ben.

Hi Ben,

Unfortunately, there is no such option right now but you can suggest it here, on Highcharts UserVoice page: https://highcharts.uservoice.com/forums ... script-api. Also, if you look at the Roadmap section: https://www.highcharts.com/documentation/roadmap you can read that there is a new version of Cloud on the way and it will contain many new features like datastorage on a private server and integration with third party datasources.

Regards.

Hi Paul,

Thanks so much for the updates and resources! I've look into the Roadmap session and it seems the following are exactly what we need:
- Data storage on a private server
- API (RESTful JSON-based) access with proper API keys
- Integration with third party data-sources
- inject codes on your own server: this allows you to wrap your own authentication mechanisms around the embed/inject access

These features allow us to store data in our own server and we can utilize Highchart Cloud's API to populate the high-charts. Or another option is to use the private server offerings that you Highchart provides.

Since we're already in Q4 2017, are these new features delayed by chance? The roadmap mentioned that these features will be available in early Q4 so it would be great if there are any updates I can share with the security team.

Thanks so much for your help!
Ben.
