Application Designer - Pass variable prompt values to story/app with BW Live Connection Model

Hi Folks,

we are starting with application designer and some BW queries. One requirement is to have a similar feature like the report-report-interface. The user wants to select a data cell in a table and then start via a button another report (story or application designer app) that calls another BW query and uses the data cell to fill in the prompt variables.

I know I can pass filter values to stories etc. but I need to set the variable in the BW live connection prompts.
Is something like this possible?

In the BEX web world we had been able to do this:

Thanks in advance for all replies!

Best regards,

    Hello Axel,

    What I understood from your post (correct me if I am wrong), you have a table which is created on top of a BW live query as a datasource. Once the user clicks on the cells of a table (i.e. on any dimensions, you need to open another popup with charts built on another BW live query and you need to pass the value of the cell to a variable of that query.

    If my understanding is correct. The below code may help you.

    Suppose in the table you have a cell 'Country'. On clicking on this cell you can open a popup with various charts built on a BW query which has Country as input parameter.

    in onSelect() for Table.

    V_COUNTRY (global variable) = Table_1.getSelections()[0]['Country'];

    (suppose in your popup i.e popup_1 you have a chart which is built on your second query)


    Hope this helps.

    Hi Axel,

    You can also achieve this requirement by using NavigationUtils.openStory().

    Hope this helps.
