How to configure Launchpad for Roambi Squares

Environment

Roambi Cloud

Resolution

Roambi updated it's Launchpad capabilities by adding in the ability to open a Squares view with a specific row, column or filter dimension selection.    This allows applications outside of Roambi, either native or web apps, to open the Roambi app and focus on a particular dataset in the Squares view.

In summary, the Application Link is copied from the information page of a particular RBI.  Once that URL is determined, there are additional pieces of information required to pass in the URL:

  • Name of the field used for the Row Dimension
  • Name value of the Row Dimension item
  • Name of the field used for the Column Dimension
  • Name value of the Column Dimension item
  • Name of the field used for the Filter Dimension
  • Name value of the Filter Dimension item

Once you have the following items, you can begin to construct your URL:

Please note that you may pass the following combination of parameters:

1) Row Dimension only
Application Link &defaults={"selections": [{"Row Dimension Name": "Row Dimension Value"}]}

2) Row Dimension with Filter Dimension*
Application Link &defaults={"selections": [{"Row Dimension Name": "Row Dimension Value", "Filter Dimension Name": "Filter Dimension Value"}]}

3) Column Dimension only
Application Link &defaults={"selections": [{"Column Dimension Name": "Column Dimension Value"}]}

4) Column Dimension with Filter Dimension*
Application Link &defaults={"selections": [{"Column Dimension Name": "Column Dimension Value", "Filter Dimension Name": "Filter Dimension Value"}]}

*Note: If you choose to pass the Filter Dimension selection, your template RBI must have a filter dimension.

 

For a video walkthrough, please see the Roambi Card example here.

9) ENCODE it on the site in Step 6

10) Add the encoded string to the URL after Step 5
