yes, you can write Page Parameter values to a different page and drill-down to it.
1. You have 6 pages in you View and you need first to know their IDs to perform a drill-down. Typically, page IDs are numbered in sequence starting from 1, but in case you sorted the pages or added / removed some of them, other IDs could have been created. So, to know the ID of each destination page, the best way is to add, in each page, a "Page Parameters" portlet and take note of the number after "/" in the page id shown. In the following example, the page id is 2:
You can then remove the Page Parameters portlet.
2. In the Data Mart table configuration, you can specify a global destination page in the Page Parameters tab:
or, in case you need a different drill-down page for each link or according to a value specified in a column, you can configure the "Drill down" section for each action link:
3. Be sure to have selected "Parameter to Write" as "System" for the column that contains the system IDs,
4. Be sure to have specified "Write to page" in the Page Parameters tab for the "System" page parameter:
5. In case you have set a Community parameter, you can clean it with the Page Parameters portlet.
Hope it helps.
Thanks Gaspare, I was using the 'Name' of the page rather than the index, it was redirecting to the correct page but not setting the Page Parameter, I switched to use the Index and everything is working 100% now - Brilliant.
Just to clarify I am using "Drill Down Based on column", my custom search query populates a custom data mart with a list of servers and the query populates a hidden column with the correct page based on the Server Type, as I said previously my query populated that column with Page Names. It now populates with the Page Index and is fully working (odd that using Page Name performs the redirect but doesn't set the Page Parameter though :-S )
Thanks again for your help
You are welcome Simon!
By the way, if you have TrueSight Capacity Optimization 10.7, I would suggest to create custom Views in the TrueSight console rather than in the Views section:
Views in the TrueSight console come out with a set of out-of-the-box templates that make the View creation and configuration much more easier, with enhanced UI and new features.
