Dashboards & Visualizations

Set a token name based on the value?

Path Finder

Is it possible to dynamically set a token name to show/hide panels, based on the value of the input?

I have a dashboard with panels that are specific to certain applications, but irrelevant to others. I want to hide the irrelevant panels when they don't apply. 

Such as:

<input type="text" searchWhenChanged="true" >
                       <set token="view_$value$"></set>

Results in: "Invalid token name: "viewxml_$value$"" 

Im trying to NOT hard-code service names, because there are many, with a <condition> if possible.

I don't have access to javascript so I haven't tried this out, but maybe it will inspire you or others to try something like this.

Tokens can be passed as parameters on the dashboard URL. You could add a parameter token to the URL and use it as a token in your dashboard (I have tried this part by just changing my address URL in my browser).

In the worse case, you may be able to use a drilldown to call your dashboard with the required tokens included in the URL. This will trigger a reload of your dashboard which may not be ideal.

The interesting idea is to perhaps use javascript to modify the current document parameters so that a reload is not required. Maybe look here for some ideas.
