    Pass database name to Tableau as query string parameter

    Karen Healey

      We have an implementation of a Data Visualizations Portal for one state.  The database is specific to the state.  We want to expand to other states but each state has it's own database name.  We DO have one parent database that all states will share and that is where we keep the stored procedures.  But the stored procedures will need to take, as input, the database name to use (or the state code, which we can use to derive that database name in the stored procedure).  The question is, how do we get that information to Tableau?  I know we can pass query string parameters for filters, but this it not quite the same.  We want to send over, in the query string, a parameter that can be used in the stored procedure.

       

      Thank you,
