GoodData Portal

To assemble the metrics, reports, and dashboards in your GoodData projects, use is the GoodData Portal.

After you login and select your project, you can begin building the metrics to use in your reports and add and configure the reports that appear in the dashboards available to all project users.

Multi-Dimension Analytics Query Language (MAQL)

MAQL is the querying language used to generate metrics from the project's datastore. In most cases, metrics can be built through the GoodData Portal wizard-based interface. The output of these metrics is typically a single MAQL SELECT statement.
