Filter Parameters with embedded JSON

    I have an embedded report designer where each datasource is set as an embedded datasource with “jsondata=” in the Connection.

    This is working fine, and I can dynamically set the static JSON for each datasource and use it in the report.

    However I’m struggling to get report parameters to work as a filter over the JSON data.

    I can define, for instance, a string parameter, and then use it in filter clause with a like - “.*” operator. However this input parameter is not presented when the report is run,

    If I state that the parameter can be empty / null, no parameters icon appears in the left menu on the report.

    If I change things so that the parameter cannot be empty / null, the parameters icon appears, but no prompt for the parameter or entry field is displayed, the space where this should be is blank.

    Do you have an example of a report with embedded JSON that uses a parameter value as a filter so I could check to see what I’ve missed?

    It sounds like the parameters panel is invisible. Please ensure that the height of the element that hosts the viewer instance is explicitly set in the CSS rules.

    Thanks, that was exactly the issue - back on track.
