Unx query in DS and passing veriable as prompt input?


Is it possible to load a datasource from unx universe where a prompt is defined without having the user to input a value. Instead i want to pass a variable to the datasource and reload with that variable as a part of the where clause.

Hi yakobay,

Couldnt you just put a default value in your prompt query, unless im missing something.

Actually it was I that was missing something.
I am used to work with unv universes but for Lumira i converted the universe i needed to unx. And i was not aware the possibility to set up parameters for the universe. But got that sorted now.

Next step is using a web service as data source but as far as i can see it was possible in 1.6 but now in 2.1 I only have Straming data source available in the custom data source section.

Our project dont have resources to buy 3rd party tools for this so i have used some time on google but without any luck.
