Link Dashboard Prompts to Analyzer Parameters

This process only applies to dashboards that include parameterized Analyzer reports. You must have an Analyzer report with a query parameter in it in order to proceed.

The instructions below explain how to parameterize an Analyzer report.

  1. In Analyzer, choose a field in your report to which you want to link; then, right-click and choose Filter.

    In the example below, data will be filtered by Territory.

  2. In the Filter dialog box, enter a name for the parameter in the Parameter Name text box and click the check box to enable it.
  3. Select the values you want associated with the parameter. Use the arrows to add values to the box on the right.
  4. Click OK to exit the Filter dialog box.
  5. Save your Analyzer report.

    In the upper left corner of the report, you can see that a filter is in use. Click (Edit) to edit your filter; click to delete the filter.

  6. Create a dashboard and drag the Analyzer report into a panel.

    The name of the parameter appears in the lower portion of the dashboard under Parameters.

  7. Add a filter to the dashboard based on the parameter you created in your Analyzer report. The filter appears in the dashboard.
