I'm new to dashboard, Can I access data from external data sources? for example

  1. Database Table / View which is not registered with Geodatabase (Example: Employee or User table)
  2. Rest Endpoint (Example: OpenWeatherMap API)

@JayAppusamy,

1.  ArcGIS Dashboard won't be able to access data from a database table unless it's published as a service. ArcGIS Insights does have the ability to connect directly to a Database.  That may be an option you can explorer.

2.  If the REST Endpoint is added as an item to your Organization (i.e AGOL, ArcGIS Enteprise), or added to a web map, then it will be accessible in the Dashboard.
