Using click action URL in embedded dashboard shows extra toolbar information

Follow this link for a detailed video of the issue.

Hi Corey,

Please leverage Navigation action for your use case instead of URL action.
The source and target sheets will have to included in same dashboard for this. You can hide the sheet tab controls using sheetTabsDisabled:true option in the calling embedding function. (More info on usage is available here. )

URL action is meant for redirecting to any generic url. As such, the control enable/disable options that are set on the parent dashboard don’t flow through into this layer.

Thanks for the info! This will definitely be an issue for us. It is very common for a manager type person to want to see a high level summary dashboard that consists of many different metrics across the company (different data coming from many different data sets). For each of those summary widgets, the manager will want to click on it to open a more detailed dashboard of those metrics.

It would be great if all of these dashboards didn’t have to exist as one dashboard with different sheets. The embedded features should allow for easier navigation between dashboards.

Hi Corey,

Most welcome.
We already have a Product Feature Request logged for easier navigation between dashboards.

Please have your AWS account manager add a customer influence to the PFR. Alternatively, mail me your org details and I can add the customer influence entry on your behalf.
