Can I configure a drilldown on navigation panel so I can pass the filter tokens to the next page?

I'm not asking for cascading option here instead I'm asking for a drilldown option that when I click a menu option on the navigation panel.

Re: Can I configure a drilldown on navigation panel so I can pass the filter tokens to the next page?

On a normal drilldown, you are clicking on something particular (an event row/cell), and the value of the token being passed changes based on what you clicked on. Are you looking to pass a dynamic value? If so, I'm not sure how you'd specify what that dynamic value was.

But if you're looking to pass a particular hard-coded value to another dashboard/search page, that's doable using a straight up <a> tag in the navigation XML. For example, if you wanted to send users to the search page within the current app and trigger a search for "test_thing" when they clicked on a label of "this is a test", you would add the following to your navigation.xml file:

  <a href="search?q=test_thing">this is a test</a>

If you want to specify a dashboard name, you'd replace search with the dashboard name, and you'd replace q with the name of a form input.

Eliott ,thanks for your reply.
i would like to pass tokens between the navigation panel options.

when i open a app, it has navigation menu and few panels below the navigation bar.
those panels below have few dropdown which are the tokens.
when i click between the navigation i would like these tokens to be passed between them, so that i dont have to select those tokens again.

i earlier asked this in a previous case and understand i cannot pass token between the navigation menu options. so in this case i was asking if the navigation menu clicks can have drilldown where in i can pass tokens.

i was wondering if this was possible to treat navigation menu clicks this way.

im not mentioning here the clicks on rows/columns on the panels , im talking about navigation menu options, ex: search, dashbaord and any custom view that i add for that option..

hope i was clear with my query..
