Manage variable controls

After you’ve added variable controls to your dashboard, you can edit or delete them at any time.

Edit the settings of a variable control

You must have permission to edit or manage the dashboard to edit its variable controls.

To edit the settings of an existing variable control:

  1. Select Settings from your dashboard’s sidebar.

  2. Go to the Variables tab.

  3. Expand the settings for the control that you want to edit and make changes as need.

  4. Select Save.

Alternatively, you can also get to the Variables tab by doing the following:

  1. Hover over the control on the dashboard.

  2. Select More actions () > Edit settings.

Edit a query of a variable control

You must have permission to edit or manage the dashboard and permission to query or manage the data sources used to create the variable control.

“Dropdown” and “Date slider” controls are built using a query and, optionally, other Visual SQL steps to transform the results. To edit the Visual SQL of these controls:

  1. Hover over the control on the dashboard.

  2. Select More actions () > Edit control. This will take you to the control editor.

Reset the values of a variable control

If you’ve changed the values of any variable controls on a dashboard, you can quickly reset all the controls to their default values.

You can either:

  • select the dashboard’s title at the top-left corner of the dashboard

  • or reset the values from the Variables tab by doing the following:

    1. Select Settings from the dashboard sidebar.

    2. Go to the Variables tab.

    3. Select Reset values.

Delete a variable control

You must have permission to edit or manage the dashboard to delete its variable controls.

To delete a variable control from your dashboard:

  1. Hover over the control on the dashboard.

  2. Select More actions () > Delete.

Because “Hidden variable” controls are not displayed on the dashboard, you need to do the following to delete them:

  1. Select Settings from the dashboard sidebar.

  2. Go to the Variables tab.

  3. Select in the row of the “Hidden variable” control that you want to delete.
