Dashboard - Passing Filter Values Using URL Parameters

A customer may want to pass a filter value using the URL (as a parameter). A common case could be when an external system launches a dashboard and wants it to default to a specific value.

The following script allows you to parse the parameters received in the URL and apply them to the dashboard filters.


1. Apply the following script to your dashboard:

dashboard.on('initialized', function(widget) {
// Get Parameters
urlParameters = window.location.href.substring(window.location.href.indexOf('?')+1).split('&')

// Parse Parameters
parameters = new Map();
urlParameters.forEach(function(param) { parameters.set(param.split('=')[0],param.split('=')[1]) })

prism.activeDashboard.filters.$$items.forEach(function(fil) {
if (parameters.get(fil.jaql.title) !== undefined) {
fil.jaql.filter.explicit = true
fil.jaql.filter.userMultiSelect = true
fil.jaql.filter.members = [parameters.get(fil.jaql.title)]

2. Acquire the URL of your dashboard

3. Add parameters (align with filter names):

4. Refresh the dashboard and watch your filters pane:




9 - Travel Pro
9 - Travel Pro

That looks pretty useful and a lot more readable than passing the filter JAQL in the url -- but does this replace the filter JAQL method of setting filters in newer Sisense versions or is this an additional possibility?


Hi @irismaessen - This is a different approach to the problem...

Hey Ophir,

That's great, I'll have to investigate if this doesn't work better for us in some cases.

Thank you for the information!
