2326672 - How to configure Launchpad for Roambi Card view.


Roambi Cloud updated it's Launchpad capabilities by adding in the ability to open a Card view with a specific 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 Card.

In summary, the Application Link is copied from the information page of a particular RBI.  Once that URL is determined, there are 2 additional pieces of information required to pass in the URL:

  • 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:

Application Link&defaults={"selections": [{"Filter Dimension Name": "Filter Dimension Value"}]}
