InputParameters in DataCube Datasets [message #754787] Fri, 04 November 2011 11:01 Go to next message

I know it is possible to user query parameters in datasets and set them to a specific value, when
using that dataset in a report items. This improved performance quite a bit for us, since the filtering
of data can be done in SQL instead of BIRT.

Now we were wondering, how can u use Dataset with Parameters in a Data Cube, to be used in a crosstab ?
We couldn't find anywhere in the report designer to specify how to fill a dataset parameter. Probably, I would
expect to be able to add parameters to a datacube, which can be passed to the dataset the cube uses.

If there is no way to archive this with the report designer, any ideas how to do this with scripting? I could
imagine changing the default parameter value of the datase or sth. like that.

I'm pretty sure that you have to use filters when limiting a dataCube, but I could be wrong. I've tried in the past with no success. You can always file an enhancement request to be able to do this.




Add interactivity, scheduling, sharing, live Excel export, and JS integration to your BIRT app with the new, free BIRT server, BIRT iHub F-Type.
