Could a saved search be linked to a URL(hyperlink) in a dashboard and the saved search must be run when the URL is clicked?

We are trying to embed a link to a saved search in a dashboard and the saved search must be run when a user clicks on it.
The saved search need not display the results to the user rather it must trigger a script after the serach is complete that inturm will update a file and the file to be mailed to the user.

Hi premg,

this is just a pointer in a direction you probably could go, I don't know if it will work.

There is a module called SubmitButton which could be used for this. In combination with something like this:

<module name="HiddenSavedSearch" autoRun="False">
   <param name="HiddenSavedSearch">"My Foo Saved Search"</param>
</module>

cheers, MuS

You can launch a saved search from clicking a link by making the link point at the report view like this:

http://yourhost:8000/en-US/app/search/report?s=savedsearchid

Where savedsearchid is something like this:

%2FservicesNS%2Fusername%2Fappname%2Fsaved%2Fsearches%2Fsavedsearchname

That will open the reports view though.
If you're using JavaScript to build your dashboards you can listen to a dummy link being clicked and launch any search you like by starting a SearchManager, with no need to redirect the user to any new page or to display results.
