2. How to limit the data set in Webi and performance tuning so as not to get more data into Dashboard.

4. How to pass prompt values from Dashboard to Webi.

    Hi Nagaraj,

    As suggested by Vinay, you can have a better understanding if you go through the docs.

    The key concepts here are Performance and Restricting data at Webi level by passing prompt values from Dashboard.

    This needs a separate web service URL with a List of values (Object placed in prompt) from Webi to avoid sending hard coded values from Dashboard.

    Map those values/Web service Query data to a selector, as shown in the below.

    Select the Query data option, it will pop up with Data Manager Wizard with list of connections available. select the desired connection and select the object.

    Now no need to map static values values from Spreadsheet to component....

    Hope this is add-on to the above post...

    Thanks,

    Raju
