Default behavior of dashboard parameters

This topic describes how and why dashboard default settings values may change depending on how you access a given dashboard. 

Access a dashboard from the All dashboards screen or a time tag

When you visit a dashboard with no specific context, the dashboard is displayed based on all of the dashboard parameters default values.

You can access dashboards via hyperlinks with preset dashboard parameters.

For example, you could have a payment search dashboard with a hyperlink for displaying results for the EUR currency, and another hyperlink for displaying the payments realized in the US .

If you click an internal hyperlink to access a dashboard, the dashboard parameters are initialized with the following algorithm:

  • If the hyperlink contains a value for this parameter, the value of the hyperlink is used.
  • If the hyperlink does not contain a value (Not Set), then:
    • If the parameter is configured with a default value in the target dashboard configuration, this default value is used.
    • Otherwise, the parameter is initialized with no selected value.
