    Can you tell me how to use a break by with this plug in?

    I'm getting an error that the widget is trying to use fields from two tables that aren't connected in the ElastiCube.  I've set this up as directed.  By definition the Parameter table cannot be joined to any other in the E-Cube.  Anyone else experience this?

    @Robert - I had similar issue when I forgot to remove previous parameters plugin. In Notes section Takashi mentioned that you need to remove those two prior to using this one(you need to delete respective folders in PrismWeb\plugins).

    I don't have the other plugins Takashi mentioned installed.

    @Robert, I also did not have the other 2 plugins installed, and got the same error when trying to use the parameter within a Pivot.

    It worked for me when using the parameter as part of the calculation within an indicator widget, but I need it to work within a pivot widget. If you can get this to work in a pivot please let me know how you did.

    @ Robert, based on Michael's comment, I wonder if we have conflicting plugins installed....

    @Robert and Robert - I'd suggest deleting all plugins except for this one to verify any possible conflicts. If it works, then add remaining plugins back, in some other cases this approach helped me to resolve some issue. It works for me on Pivot as well, so maybe there is a conflict with other plugin modifying Pivot? Do you use any custom JS on Pivot? In any case it might be good to rise a ticket with Sisense.

    I'm trying to use it in a line widget.  the parameter is recognized and usable until I add an x-axis value.  Also it's not getting updated when I change the value in the parameter widget.

    I removed all plugins and tried it again.  No luck.  I do have a ticket in for this.

    @ Michael & @Robert - which versions of Sisense are you using?

    @Ahuva - the newest 6.4.1.13002

    we are running v 5.8.1.29 in Production.  The plugin does not work on this version.  We have a development environment set up at 6.2.5.115.  I've tried it there and it doesn't work.  The good news is that this plugin doesn't work consistently from the older to the newer environment.

    @Karl,Tom - you have to add given parameter as SUM first in the formula editor, then right click on it in formula editor and rename it to [@fieldname.value]

    Can the input parameter be used for Text values?

    I would like to use an input parameter to allow for dynamic measured filtering, allowing the user to enter TEXT into the input which will then take on the value of the measured filter.

    Not sure if there is a better way.

    Any thoughts?

    @Ahuva - that one will do it for you - https://support.sisense.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/221225128-Filtered-Measure-Plugin-Parameters- please mind that you combine it with this one, as Takashi mentioned in the notes.

    Is this plugin working for v6.7 ? I tried to install it but it doesn't appear in the chart type menu?

    Hi Dimitri,

    I can confirm this plugin is working on version 6.7 just fine.  If you haven't already done so, can you try restarting your IIS?  On the server, you can open up the command prompt as an admin and just type iirseset

    When passing two parameters to R with same value then this error pops up.  Is there a work around or fix for this?

    Hi,

    First, Takashi, thanks for this plugin, and double-thanks for commenting the code so thoroughly! It's really helped me understand what this rather complex plugin is doing under the hood. However, I'm trying to add a customization, and falling short. By default, the parameter divs are manifested successively within the parameters span. Sometimes this creates uneven spacing. I'd rather have exactly two columns within the parent span, no matter how the screen is resized, so that there are two even columns of parameters. Is there a way to edit the css or html file to achieve this?

    Thanks in advance!

    Is anyone else having an issue where input values specified as 0 are not being changed from their default values? For example, I have a few different input parameters, and each have a default value of 5. If I input 0 in one of the inputs to replace a 5, the zero is not recognized, and everything stays at 5.

    Anyone else experiencing this? Takashi, is there a way to fix this? Thanks in advance!

    Is this still working in 7.0.2?

    Is there a way to cosmetically change the look of the parameter? Change the font, font size, spacing between the words, or the color of the Reset button?

    Thanks!

    I am running V7.1.  The plugin does not display the default values or give the option to values.  The parameters widget appears to be blank.  Have you got this working on version 7.1?

    Hi,

    Currently I am able to use this plugin as advertised to declare the @p2.value in a formula as described above. What I am having an issue with is trying to figure out how to reference @p2.value in a widget filter so that my target list matches the outcomes. 

    Details. 

    I use the @p1.value and @p2.value to define a range : that range results in N targets

    What I'd like is for the pivot table to be able to filter off the input parameters I put into the widget so that the result set is also N targets instead of me having to go in and set the values for the between filter to match the parameters widget. Is this possible?

    The widget was update to work in version 7.2 and also maintain backward compatibility to earlier versions

    I'm using this on version 7.2. Love the plugin. I am seeing one issue however - when I first login to Sisense and open a dashboard with this plugin used, the Non Parameter widgets (pivots) get the golden diamond with the error:

      - The widget is trying to use fields from two tables that are not connected in the ElastiCube.

    Once I hit the Update button on the parameter widget, they go away and the pivot table is shown. Same if Auto Update is on, once I leave a field, the widgets get updated and  display correctly.

    After that it seems to work just fine. Switching away from and back to the dashboard works fine. However, once I log off and back on, the same thing happens.

    Found that there is a bug in version 7.2 on one of the API calls that the widget uses. They are looking at it.
