I have a requirement for a dashboard and wondering how to implement in best possible way.

I guess CSOM + REST is the only option

Requirement:

  1. Have multiple site collections with one Document Library.
  2. The Document Library is based on site Content Type.
  3. The site Content Type has 2 Managed Metadata based Site Columns "Document Type" & "Location".
  4. "Document Type" column has a standard set of values e.g Type 1, Type 2, Type 3, Type 4 & Type 5
  5. "Location" column has a standard set of values e.g Loc 1, Loc 2, Loc 3, Loc 4 & Loc 5
  6. The user who views the dashboard may or may not have access for all site collections

Now a dashboard is needed in one of the site collection which will parse the Document library across other multiple site collections and fetch the count as show below.

                       Type 1     Type 2     Type 3     Type 4     Type 5

        Site 1            100         50         50         150        20
        -Loc 1             20         10         10          30         4
        -Loc 2             20         10         10          30         4
        -Loc 3             20         10         10          30         4
        -Loc 4             20         10         10          30         4
        -Loc 5             20         10         10          30         4

        Site 2             40         60         50         150        20
        -Loc 1             10         10         10          30         4
        -Loc 2             10         10         10          30         4
        -Loc 3             10         10         10          30         4
        -Loc 4              5         10         10          30         4
        -Loc 5              5         20         10          30         4

All suggestions are welcomed & Thanks in advance.
