  • 7. What is Visio Services
  • 8. Why Visio Services
  • 9. Overview of Visio Services in SharePoint Server 2013 Visio Services runs as a SharePoint Server 2013 service application. Use and benefits of Visio Services • Visio diagrams can be rendered by Visio Services and viewed in a Web browser. • Users can view Visio documents without having Visio or the Visio Viewer installed on the local computer. • Diagrams can also be viewed on mobile devices. • Basic exploration and navigation of these rendered diagrams are supported within the Visio Web Access Web Part • Visio Services can refresh the data and recalculate the visuals of a Visio diagram hosted on a SharePoint site • Visio diagrams can be published to SharePoint Server 2013 by using Visio Professional 2013 and Visio Premium 2013.
  • 10. How it works: Architecture Visio Web Access Custom Data Providers Visio JSOM Mash-Up API Web Part Connections Visio Proxy Visio Graphics Service VDW/b/mSQL OLEDB/ODB C XLSX SP Lists
  • 11. How it works: Creating a Visio Solution Save VSDX file to SharePoint Server 2013 or Office 365 • Create Diagram • Use Data Linking and Data Graphics • View diagram in web browser • Opens diagram in Visio • Click Refresh to update data graphics • Data refresh can be automated by setting interval time Data Source • SharePoint List apps • Excel Services • SQL Server • OLEDB / ODBC
  • 12. How it works: Compatible diagrams • Visio Services in SharePoint Server 2013 can render diagrams created in Visio 2010 or Visio 2013  Visio diagrams created in Visio 2010 must be created using Visio 2010 Professional or Visio 2010 Premium and must be published to a SharePoint site as a Visio Web drawing (*.vdw) file  Visio diagrams created in Visio 2013 must be created by using Visio Professional 2013. The new standard diagram format in Visio Professional 2013 (*.vsdx files) can be rendered by Visio Services, along with the Web drawing (.vdw) format  Recommend to use the new *.vsdx format
  • 13. Configuring Visio Services Create a Visio Graphics Service service application in SharePoint Server 2013. 2 options: 1. Create using Central administration 2. Create using Powershell 2.
