Passing field selections in Qliksense Mashup through HTML URL


When we try to embed an app sheet or object in IFRAME using Single configurator, we are able to pass the selection to Fileds by appending this   "&select=<FieldName>,<FiledValue>" and the end of the generated URL. when we will be passing from our integrated host application. But when we try to do the same way in mashup we are unable to pass the selections like single configurator

Work Around:

So as work around solution we tried to parse the URL and take the parameters from URL and assign it to selections in the Mashup JS file.


Add the below mentioned a function in Mashup JS file you can parse the string in your Mashup URL

function GetURLParameter(sParam)


    var sPageURL = window.location.search.substring(1);

    var sURLVariables = sPageURL.split('&');

    for (var i = 0; i < sURLVariables.length; i++)


        var sParameterName = sURLVariables.split('=');

        if (sParameterName[0] == sParam)


            return sParameterName[1];

Step 2:

Assign the parsed values to a variable using this function

var vFieldName= GetURLParameter('State');

Step 3:

Apply the variable to the Qlik selection

app.field("<FieldName>").selectMatch(vFieldName, false);

Sample Mashup URL Format : http://localhost:4848/extensions/mashup-test/mashup-test.html?<FieldName>=<FieldValue>

In case of multiple fields repeat the above step 2,3 again.

P.S. If there is any other better option to pass the selections to the Mashup URL, Please help.
