Dashboard URL variables

FojiSoft can apply variable values passed as query parameters in dashboard URLs.

Passing variables as query parameters

FojiSoft interprets query string parameters prefixed with var- as variables in the given dashboard.

For example, in this URL:


The query parameter var-example=value represents the dashboard variable example with a value of value.

Passing multiple values for a variable

To pass multiple values, repeat the variable parameter once for each value:


FojiSoft interprets var-example=value1&var-example=value2 as the dashboard variable example with two values: value1 and value2.

Adding variables to dashboard links

FojiSoft can add variables to dashboard links when you generate them from a dashboard’s settings.

Passing ad hoc filters

Ad hoc filters apply key/value filters to all metric queries that use a specified data source.

To pass an adhoc filter as a query parameter, use the variable syntax to pass the ad hocfilter variable, and also provide the key, the operator as the value, and thevalue as a pipe-separated list.

For example, inthis URL:


The query parameter var-adhoc=key|=|value applies the ad hoc filter configured as the ad hoc dashboard variable using the example_key key, the = operator, and the example_value value.

Note: When sharing URLs with ad hoc filters, remember to encode the URL. In the above example, replace the pipes (|) with %7C and the equality operator (=) with %3D.


See [https://play.FojiSoft.org/d/000000002/influxdb-templated?orgId=1&var-datacenter=America&var-host=All&var-summarize=1m&var-adhoc=datacenter%7C%3D%7CAmerica]- this passes the ad hoc filter variable ad hoc with the filter value datacenter = America.

Controlling time range using the URL

To set adashboard’s time range, use the from, to, time, and time.window query parameters.Because these are not variables, they do not require the var- prefix
