How to pass BEx variable (Parameters) values to an SAP Xcelsius dashboard
Use Case: You have a parent dashboard, and a child dashboard. Now you want to pass parameters from parent to child.
Background:Traditionally dashboards(xcelsius) are able to embed opendoc url’s within them and invoke webi reports along with passing parameters. This works like charm with the url component invoking these links. But when it comes to invoking the dashboards, there are a few extra steps we need to include(in the parent) to achieve the same.
What you need to have in parent and child SAP dashboards:
- Parent dashboard: A URL link with all the syntax to pass the parameters to the child
- Child dashboard:Flash variables configured to receive the parameters from the parent dashboard and also refresh the queries in the child dashboard.
