Define a parameter with multiple values (QlikSense)

Hi all,

I'm a newbie working with QlikSense so I do apologise for this silly question. I would like to create a "parameter" in QlikSense which can take different values. Unfortunately, I'm not able to achieve it.

For example, let's suppose that the parameter, called "Letter", can be equal to 'A', 'G' or 'M'. As a next step, this parameter will be assigned to a filter.

Some time ago, I worked with Tableau and it was very to do it. Is it posible to achieve it working with QlikSense?

I would really appreciate if anyone could help me solve this issue. Thank you very much in advance.

Best regards,

Gonzalo

Hi Gonzalo,

You can achieve it using App Integration API.

Refer the below link.

Hi Gonzalo,

What are you trying to achieve in your visualisation? I mean, without specifically trying to pass a parameter. The Qlik Associative Model differs from what Tableau offers; In Qlik everything is already "connected".

This may not be your case but I guess Qlik needs a bit of time to get used to especially if you come from another BI tool.

Cheers,

Luis

Re: Define a parameter with multiple values (QlikSense)

Hi all,

Thank you very much for your replies and help.

Finally, I achieved it by typing the following code in the data load editor:

LOAD * Inline

[Letter,

A,

G,

M

];

Best regards,

Gonzalo
