Custom widget without plugin programming possible / planned?

Hello all,

I have been searching the docs for a while now and finally decided to ask here at the forum, because my search was not successfull.

I know it is possible to create plugins in oder to realize widgets showing a custom subset of data in a specific way. But…

It is possble to use the API to tailor data shown by a already exsisting. For Example change




By adding the “segment” param the widget shows a subset of data.

Is there any way to ‘save’ this customized widget calls for reuse on a dashboard?

If it is not possible yet, are there any plans to create a possiblity like this in the future?


Best Regards

Yes it is planned: Segmentation: implement UI for adding/editing segments, and switching segments · Issue #2135 · matomo-org/matomo · GitHub

Oh, this sounds great. Very much looking forward to it.

Thanks so far for your great work!

Best Regards.
