Question

When accessing Xtraction dashboards, is there any way to pass dashboard filter parameters via the URL?

Answer

You cannot pass filters via an URL when accessing a Xtraction Dashboard. 

If you run any saved Xtraction dashboard, filter or no filter, and use the 'copy link to clipboard' option in the top right, you will be able to see the URL generated for each Xtraction dashboard. 

You will notice it will just contain an ID (for example - http://localhost/Xtraction/Dashboard.aspx?Id=0A28A678-19E6-2070-E371-E9874411EF80). That ID corresponds to the GUID in the LinkID column, Dashboard table, within the Xtraction database.  In that same table, there is an NText column called DashboardData which contains the filter parameters and other information regarding the Xtraction dashboard.
