Introduction to the Embedding SDK

The Embedding SDK allows you to quickly integrate a MicroStrategy dossier into a web application in a responsive manner. It also provides resources to add functionality such as controlling navigation, retrieving and applying filters, setting properties, and managing events, and supports several different authentication environments.

There are three basic steps for embedding a dossier.

  1. In the initial page of your web application, add a link to the MicroStrategy JavaScript Embedding SDK.

    <script src="{YOUR_LIBRARY_SERVER_URL}/javascript/embeddinglib.js"></script>

    Replace {YOUR_LIBRARY_SERVER_URL} with your actual MicroStrategy Library Server URL, e.g.,


    If the application server is different from the server running the MicroStrategyLibrary application, you may need to perform additional configuration to support Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS).

  2. Create a <div> as the placeholder where you want to embed the dossier.

    <div id="dossierContainer"></div>
  3. Call the microstrategy.dossier.create(props) method when the application has finished loading.

    const placeholderDiv = document.getElementById("dossierContainer");
    placeholder: placeholderDiv,

    Check out all the properties you can set in the microstrategy.dossier.create(props) method. You can do many things with the properties. To name a few, you can set filters, show/hide UI elements, and adjust the size of the embedded dossier.

To help you get started, we have provided a number of simple applications with sample code and explanations.
