WAD - Data Binding by Navigation in Web Application Designer


I have two Analysis Item, u2018Xu2019 and u2018Yu2019, with different Data Providers, u2018DP_Xu2019 and u2018DP_Yu2019.

Analysis Item u2018Xu2019 has the setting u201CData Binding u2013 Affected Data Provideru201D = u2018DP_Y'.

This means that if I make a filter (in the user interface) in Analys Item u2018Xu2019 it will affect Analysis Item u2018Yu2019 as well.

Fine! This works as I wish. But only if the filtered characteristic exists in both Data Providers. But this will NOT work if I make a filter setting on a characteristic that not exists in both Data Providers.


Analysis Item X and Data Provider DP_X:

Analysis Item Y and Data Provider DP_Y:

If a make a filter for 0JOB it will, off curse, affect the result in Item u2018Xu2019.

But as long the characteristic not exists in u2018DP_Yu2019 it will not affect Item u2018Yu2019. Unfortunate the Queries for the Data Providers are created on different Info Providers so I canĀ“t have 0JOB as free characteristic in the other provider.

My hope is that Data Binding in some way can be created based on navigation. Is it possible? Or do you have any other solution, idea or input to solve this problem?

Best regards
