Custom dashboard / using dashboarddata variables


while I am creating a custom dashboard, I create a shared variable using bigfixme functions.

bigfix.dashboarddate.add(“Name”, “Value”);

the questions are:

  1. how can I check this variable in javascript? alert(bigfix.dashboarddata(“Name”)) or alert(Name) ?
  2. can I use this variable to store a value to use it again after restart the console ?

after some digging in internet I can see that these variables are being used in power management historical dashboards. so it seems that bigfix server stores the (name,value) pair and we can use them again and again.

so now, only question is:

how can we use these variables after we create them ?

I found a session relevance inspector that provides this: variable of bes wizard
