As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only.

New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.

What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.

During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.

Hello,

I'm in a position where I need several panels in a dashboard to interact with eachother. For example, if a bar is clicked on panel A, then panel B and C update to show only data related to that bar. I think this is a very basic BI thing to do, but with all the extra coding that I'm doing this feels like a hack. And I would rather not code that way.

I've inherited my BI environment and my predecessor has often used the drillRefresh JavaScript function to get this done. And all the panels are defined in BI Portal. I can work with this, but I hit some walls when using another htm file as a filter panel (this htm file is used to update every panel via a submit button and several drop downs and what not). The problem stems with how/when quotes are put around the variables. I'm having to use two separate variables to filter the same column which just seems wrong.

As an alternate I tried using the Tasks and Animations panel in HTML canvas, but to be honest I can't remember what the issue was there. Needless to say I was unsuccessful.

So... how do you folks do this? What are some pros and cons to these different approaches? Is there some other way to do this?

Whatever I've done seems like a hack and I have to think there is a better way. I think what I'm trying to do here (linking different panels) is the MAIN selling feature of a BI, and I can't help thinking that I'm going about this wrong.

Thank you,

One of the options on creating a drill down (Hyperlink) is to Refresh BI Portal. This option when all reports have the same &variable name will refresh any reports in that portal.


Thank you for using Focal Point!

Using drillRefresh? Is there another way to do this?

This was the only idea I had... Maybe someone else knows of something else.
