Using Custom URL Actions with Parameters in Amazon QuickSight

A URL action lets you launch any URL from a data point in a visual, to open another webpage. You can also pass or send parameters dynamically. To make this work, you set up a parameter, and then add a custom URL action to the visual. The parameters on both the sending and the receiving end should match in name and data type.

If you just want to use a parameter in a link, without creating a URL action, see Using Parameters in a URL.

To use a parameter in a custom URL action, select it from the list. Parameters are prefixed with a $ and enclosed in angle brackets << >>, for example: <<$parameterName>>.

For details on creating a URL action, see Adding Custom URL Actions to Visuals in Amazon QuickSight.
