PASSING MULTIPLE VALUES FROM ONE DASHBOARD TO ANOTHER

Hello,

We are trying to build a dashboard. Here is the scenario, In the main (parent) dashboard the user makes all the selection of countries (typically in a list builder component). Then when he hit ok, another dashboard (child) will be triggered where they can see the charts/details for those countries. So the problem is how to pass the selections (multiple) that are made in parent dashboard to child one.

Please help me how resolve this. Thank you

      Hi RV,

      for passing multiple values follow the below procedure.

      1. collect multiple values in the cells say V1, V2 V3 etc..

      2. Now for your cell V30 write a formula like this V30 = V1&";"&V2&";"&V3 and so on...

      3. Bind your lsSvariable name to the cell V30 as you have done above..

      now your final URL will be like this...

      <opendocurl>lsSvraiablename=V30

      where V30 contains your multiple values as in step 2.

      Thanks

    Thanks a lot everyone now I was able to pass parameters using flash variables, but it is opening up in a new tab everytime we click the URL. Is there any way we can open it in same tab?

    Thank you very much for your time.

      Hello Karthik,

      Thanks a lot for the response. Seems like changing the window option to "this window" in URL component is the appropriate solution but it did not work. I changed it and exported the dashboard to platform and tried to open it in BI launch pad. when i click on URL component it is giving no response.

      coming to the second one i.e., "&sWindow=same" it is opening up in a new window. This does not have any affect. I think SAP has made it obsolete in newer versions. I mean this parameter does not exist anymore I believe.

      Please let me know any other work arounds
