BI 4.1 – How to Import a dashboard in another dashboard

Importing a dashboard into another dashboard BI platform 4.1 SP1 Patch4

  • 2 components are suitable: SWF Loader & Slide show in


The SWF loader component is similar
    to the slide show component: it loads SWF files from a specified

URL so you do not have to import
    the files. The SWF loader has better memory management than the

slide show component, but it does not have
    transition effects and cannot block mouse events.



  • Go to the properties of your component and map the url to your excel-sheet

  • Fill In the URL generic-code



  • Add the CUID of your dashboard that you want to load in cell B3

(rightclick on the launchpad your required dashboard,
click properties and there you’ll see the CUID)

  • GO to “Data” >> “Connections” … The “Data Manager” will open, Click “Add” and choose Flash Variables


  • Click in ranges on the “+” Icon, Change the name of ranges to “CELogonToken”

Change Variable format to “csv” and map the range to cell B4 in your

And finally click “close”.


  • Now, your dashboard is ready! And should look like this (I used both components

  • Save your dashboard on the launchpad and open it (note : on preview you will see no


Important remark ! the swf-loader opens
faster !!!!


Goal: Passing values from the parent dashboard to to the child

  • Create
    a Parent-Dashboard, including a SWF-loader, create a selector (example =
    combobox (apple/pear) to push the value through your child dashboard.

  • Create
    a Flash Variable (according to the first steps of this document)

  • Use
    the code in your excel-sheet and map the excel-cells correctly


Note: paramater is the flashvariable
name of your child-dashboard, value is the output of your selector (combobox).

  • Create
    child-dashboard (use the cuid in your parent-dashboard, cel B3) and the
    appropriate flash variable
