Google Maps API Integration- UPDATED Sep 2013
With the release of CMaps Plugin 4, we are moving away from using Google’s Flash APIs in favor of our brand new CMaps Analytics Flash API which uses map services and geocoding from TomTom. More information on new keys
When deploying a SWF containing GMaps Plugin, you must authorize the domain for which the content will be hosted. By default, GMaps Plugin will function on your desktop PC so you can develop and test content locally.
Each version of GMaps Plugin has different requirements for authorization of domains:
GMaps Plugin Standard trial is available for testing on your local computer only. To use GMaps Plugin trials, you will require a GMaps Plugin Trial key which is a 21 digit key that looks like the following:
AVAILABILITY OF GMAPS PLUGIN ENTERPRISE TRIAL
GMaps Plugin Standard trial does NOT allow for publishing of content on a server environment. This restriction was introduced with changes to the Google Maps API for Flash in 2011. As part of the evaluation process, when you require testing in SAP BusinessObjects Platform, SAP NetWeaver, Sharepoint, or any other web environment, you can request an upgrade to GMaps Plugin Enterprise trial. Please contact Centigon Solutions sales for more information.
If you have any questions about trials, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
GMaps Plugin Bundle Customers
GMaps Plugin Bundle customers do NOT need to fuss with API keys because the enterprise version of Google Maps provides global control over domains. Like the free API, your organization must still authorize use of domains with Google Maps. However, instead of defining a single approved domain per dashboard, you can have one dashboard that can be published to multiple domains, which is critical for seamless migration from dev to production. Though the process for obtaining the domain is the same, the authorization process is managed through Centigon Solutions support.
- Obtain the domain for which your SWF will be hosted (example: yoursite.com). If your site has sub-domains, port numbers, or sub folders where your SWF will reside, you should ONLY include the domain itself and EXCLUDE subdomains, ports, and folders.Example URL: http://dev.server:8080/BOE/InfoviewWhat you will copy: http://serverIf you do NOT have a domain that you will publish to and just want to test locally on your computer, go to the Xcelsius behavior tab, and check “Development Mode”.
- Copy the URL. You will require this URL to authorize its use within your organization.
- Visit Centigon Solutions support page
- Click on the Cases tab and create a new case
- Provide the domain(s) to Centigon Solutions support.
- The domain will be active for use within 24 hours of submission.
Existing Google Maps Premier Customers
- Obtain your Google Maps Premier ClientID and enter it into the Client ID field.
- Obtain the domain for which your SWF will be hosted (example: yoursite.com). If your site has sub-domains, port numbers, or sub folders where your SWF will reside, you should ONLY include the domain itself and EXCLUDE sub domains, ports, and folders.Example URL: http://dev.server:8080/BOE/InfoviewWhat you will copy: http://server
- Send this domain to Google support for authorization.
If you see the “Initialization failed” error in GMaps Plugin trial, you are running a version of GMaps Plugin 3.5 that is no longer valid. As of February 2012, GMaps Plugin trials no longer supports publishing to remote servers.
