Enabling Snapshots and Thumbnails

This setting allows you to take snapshots of your actual visuals and dashboards, which you can then download as *.png files. It also replaces the standard thumbnails that appear in the Visuals interface with miniaturized versions of the visual or dashboard. This customization makes it very easy to locate the visuals and dashboards you want to use.

Developer Note. In CDH Parcel installations, to ensure that the correct dependencies are in place for thumbnail and snapshot generation, you must add fontconfig, freetype, xorg-x11-font-utils, and urw-fonts packages to your installation. Use the following command:
> sudo yum install fontconfig freetype xorg-x11-font-utils urw-fonts

In Site Settings, under Snapshots, select the Enable snapshots option.

You can then either accept the default settings in the IP/Hostname to use to connect back to the server field, or change this setting to connect to the correct server.
