Need 

A common requirement for self service BI is to enable the viewers to save their own report. This can be achievable in Sisense if you are a designer of a dashboard.

However, when you are a viewer, you cannot even re-order the pivot columns as you please.

Challenge

The default behavior of the viewer is only to interact with the filters and view the numbers. No layout changes are allowed for a viewer.

Solution

We can change the default behavior of the viewer and allow him to re-order the rows, values & columns.

Using the API of custom roles we can achieve that. 

Solution:

Go to Admin ==> REST API ==> 0.9

PUT /roles/{idOrName}/manifest/{path} API

Fill in the following parameters:

idOrName: consumer

path: /widgets.items

manifest:

{

"reorder": true

}

Execute the API and that's it!

Note: the re-order option is enabled for all widget types (not just pivots), however, pivots are the main use case for this need.
