    I'm creating dashboards for an MSP which has several different customers. I wanted to find a way of setting the origin of a dashboard to each customer without displaying a context selector with origin and without having to change each SQL query.

     

    Does anyone know if this can be done, or is changing the SQL query for each dashboard the only way?

    Hi,

     

    If you are using the same dashboard for multiple client with custom sql queries I do not know of any other way to change the origin at run time other than with the context selector.

    If the login accounts have restricted security and are assigned to specific origins then the data will be filtered by that list of assigned origins automatically. There are some global variables in the new dashboard tool ${originsSqlList} that you can use in an arbitrary SQL statement. These don't work with the standard Nimsoft bus logins though.
