An external data source can be defined in Central > External Data Sources. External data charts are presented in real-time, like any other chart, and can be viewed from a point in time (such as the timeframe of a result or a specific relative or absolute time range). Currently, the CA Wily Introscope data format is supported.
Once configured, an external data source appears in the Dashboards, Widget Type list where its widgets can be added to dashboards alongside CloudTest widgets. CloudTest presents Introscope aggregate data at any capacity supported by the user’s credentials.
External data sources that are supported:

When check server is run, the External Data Source is checked along with all the others.
