Hello, does anyone have suggestions on accomplishing the following?
I have 2 identical dashboards that work perfectly
Dashboard "A" refreshes every 100s with underlying scheduled searches. For the underlying XML modules, useHistory is set to true and autorun="true"
Dashboard "B" has a timerangepicker and uses the same scheduled searches but useHistory is set to false and autorun="false"
Is there any way to put a dormant timerange picker on Dashboard "A" that uses a nested redirector module so once the user selects a timerange on the dormant timerange picker, a popup to dashboard "B" is performed with the predefined timerange?
Here's where i'm at w/ the dormant timerange picker on dashboard "A"
1) You definitely need a URLLoader in Dashboard B. It needs to be upstream from anything that needs to prepopulate from the URL, or use $foo$ tokens from the URL. You want no URLLoader in Dashboard A.
2) pass any args you need from A to B with the Redirector, ie <param>$search.timeRange.earliest$ and <param>$search.timeRange.latest$
3) If autoRun is false on Dashboard B itself, you'll want to pass a <param>True arg in your Redirector on Dashboard A, to override it.
4) Never nest autoRun. Meaning never have any autoRun="True" on any module that is itself contained (ie downstream) from any other module with autoRun="true". It serves no purpose and has bad side effects. autoRun cascades anyway, which is why it serves no purpose. Also, autoRun="False" is meaningless and does nothing, trust me.
