is it possible to capture filters from external page? there's this idea at work that they want to use tableau as reports only and and pages created using HTML5 as main navigation. The idea is to allow user login to the application, get their username, and perhaps from which region they're from and what customer they're working for, and pass that value to tableau reports. the reports will be hosted on Tableau server.
i have read abour URLs parameters here: How View URLs Are Structured
and this will be perfect if i want to pass static paramaters (workbook name, etc) but how about if we want to pass a more dynamic parameter? can it be done?
