I am facing a two step problem when using URL actions between two dashboards (1 Extract and other Live QUERY). I am passing around 9 filters with each filters value ranging from 1 to 50+ in extract dashboard to pass it to the live dashboard. Is there a limit to the length of URL ? how can I compress the url ? The second problem is - this is working only for some dimensions and not for others and this behavior is not consistent? Is this the issue with browser cache or something of that nature or Length of the URL that's generated once the user selects the filters.
For example an ideal URL filter for me looks like this
http://DOMAN NAME & DASHBOARD NAME ?SHOP=<FILTERVALUES(SHOP)>&DEPT=<FILTERVALUES(DEPT)>&CLASS=<FILTERVALUES(CLASS)>&SUB-CLASS=<FILTERVALUES(SUBCLASS)>&BRAND=<FILTERVALUES(BRAND)>&Vendor=<FILTERVALUES(VENDOR)>&Season=<FILTERVALUES(Season)>&ADJASSORTMENT=<FILTERVALUES(ADJASSORTMENT)>
The inconsistent behavior you're seeing is most likely a result of the fact sometimes your query string exceeds the maximum character limit and sometimes it doesn't.
There's no real workaround here, you're passing too many parameters.
