Is there any way we can capture portal ID or Name with in fex like &MYWORPMPV? We have a situation where we need to use same fex in 2 different portals and I need to hide and show data points based on which portal being called this fex?

What we have done here for common use fexes is to have a simple calling fex that includes the common one and passes the unique variable.

Waz has a good idea. Also, if the report will only be ran after being filtered from a form, you could pass a unique value to the common use report from the form (using a hidden control) that determines which portal it was ran from also.


8.2.02M (production), 8.2.02M (test), Windows 10, all outputs.

I don't think I need to show sample code. Its pretty simple.

Fex 1:
-SET &MYWORPMPV='Portal1';
-INCLUDE IBFS:/.../Fex2.fex
