How to set up a color palette in a dashboard URL for a specific user

This article provides an example JavaScript solution that allows a user to define a color palette when a dashboard loads with palette={paletteID} in the dashboard URL. This way different users could use different palettes for the same dashboard.

How to use it?

1. Grab the ID of the palette you want to use via REST API ->GET/palettes.

2. Add the palette={paletteID} to the URL for the user you want to apply your custom palette. 

3. Add the following dashboard script to your report and define the default palette ID in this line of code:

const paletteId = urlParams.get('palette') || 'paletteID


dashboard.on('initialized', async () => {
	const urlParams = new URLSearchParams(
	const paletteId = urlParams.get('palette') || '658b87f55ece05001b24b84b' //define the default palette
	if($$paletteId !== paletteId){
	const $http = prism.$injector.get('$http')
	const response = await $http.get("/api/palettes")
	const paletteToSet = => p._id === paletteId)
	dashboard.widgets.toArray().forEach(w => {

		dashboard.$dashboard.updateWidget(w, null)
	dashboard.$dashboard.updateDashboard(dashboard, 'style').then(()=>{dashboard.redraw('paletteChanged');})



4. Save the script and refresh the dashboard with the palette in the URL:
