    Dynamic Database Parameters based on selection

    jiayi zhang

      We are trying to build a dashboard with two tabs connected to two different data sources respectively.

       

      By making a selection on tab A (connected to data source A), we are expecting a value can be passed as a database parameters for data source B. Then tab B will display the data for only that passed parameter.

       

      Due to the huge size of data source B and the required refresh frequency, we only want the data to be queried for the specific selection.

       

      I only found out the way to do it using the javascript api.

      Is there any way to do it without leveraging the javascript api? or any alternative solution?

       

      Thanks,
