Opening up a Web Intelligence report using dashboard parameters

It is important to distinguish the difference between a dashboard and a report. A dashboard should be a one page visualization of the most important data a user needs to see. A report contains details that are usually to the lowest granularity, thus should remain at the SAP BusinessObjects Web Intelligence (WEBI) report level. It is a common dashboard requirement to drill down from a chart or scorecard to view individual detail items. Instead of showing the detailed items on the dashboard, we can pop up a WEBI report using parameters passed from the dashboard. In this example, we will pop up a WEBI report using one input parameter from the Dashboard Design dashboard.
