Applies to:

Business Intelligence Server Enterprise Edition - Version 11.1.1.7.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Display the value of a request variable selected from the dashboard Prompt.

If we directly try to display the value of a request variable it does not work.

Check out the following example:-

1. Create a Dashboard and add a dashboard prompt to it. Here through this prompt I am creating the Request variable Akhil which takes the list of values from the column "Geography"."Country"

2. Then I create a text box where I intend to display the value of this variable

3. I create an analysis and add that analysis to the dashboard (It could be any analysis)

4. Now open this dashboard. I have not selected a value and not clicked on Apply yet.

5. Query generated from this scenario for the report above
