Using Parameters in a URL

The following example shows the URL action of a dashboard that opens another dashboard with the parameter "ASIN" set from the caller:<<myValue>>

In the previous example, the first part of the URL is the link to the target dashboard:

We follow it with #, to introduce parameters. Next, we provide the parameter name, myParameter, prefixed with p. to identify it as a parameter, rather than a field. Then we use the equals sign = to set the parameter to field name, enclosed in angle brackets << >>. This sets it to the value in the field. You can also set it to a literal value, without the angle brackets.

If you want send a parameter from one dashboard to another, tag it as a parameter by prefixing the value with a $. For example:<<$ParentAccount>>


Use the parameter's name, not the parameter control’s display name. You can view the parameter name by opening the dashboard, and choosing Parameter on the left sidebar.

In the following example, the is no p. prefix because VendorCode is a field, not a parameter. Also, the value {Store Code} is enclosed in curly braces, because it contains a space.<<{Store Code}>>


Avoid using a ? after the dashboard link. Using the ? is a security risk. Instead, use a hash #.
