Embed ThoughtSpot

Starting in May 2022, ThoughtSpot rebranded pinboards as Liveboards. For backward compatibility, we currently support internal processes and external methods that use the older naming convention.

ThoughtSpot supports embedding Search, Liveboard, visualizations, and the full ThoughtSpot experience in a web application, product, or portal.

Starting from the 8.4.0-sw release (Limited Availability), customers licensed to embed ThoughtSpot can use ThoughtSpot Everywhere features and Visual Embed SDK.
To enable ThoughtSpot Everywhere on your cluster, contact ThoughtSpot Support.

To determine the method that best fits your embedding requirement, refer to the feature details and recommendations.

ThoughtSpot Everywhere

ThoughtSpot Everywhere provides a low-code embedded analytics platform for developers and product owners to build interactive data apps and incorporate ThoughtSpot functions and services directly into their apps, products, or services.

ThoughtSpot Everywhere offers several features to enhance your embedding experience:

  • Visual Embed SDK for quick and easy embedding

  • A developer portal with interactive developer Playgrounds, customization controls and security settings for the embedded view, and Developer Guides.

  • REST API framework to programmatically create and manage objects, data, and automate deployments

For more information, see ThoughtSpot Everywhere documentation.

Legacy embedding method

REST APIs

ThoughtSpot also provides data REST APIs using which you can embed an answer, Liveboard, or a specific visualization from a Liveboard. You can use these APIs with or without the SDK to embed ThoughtSpot content in your app.
