Hi ExB community,

I have used URL parameters in dashboards, but not yet in Map Viewer or Experience Builder.

I read through this documentation before posting here- https://doc.arcgis.com/en/experience-builder/latest/build-apps/url-parameters.htm.

I have a bunch of maps which are all pretty much the same except for three of the layers are filtered all to the same field name and feature = OperationName and which ever operation the specific ExB is about.

At the moment I save as an Experience Builder and Map Viewer from a previous operation and then have to manually filter the three layers in Map Viewer and then go into Experience Builder, swap out the map and reconnect up all the actions/triggers, target layers in the widgets. It's time consuming. I have been using ArcGIS Assistant and tried swapping out the map widget id, but there was a weird flow on effect, and it looked fine to the front end user but when I opened it up in ExB to edit it everything showed data from the previous Experience Builder I had save ased from.

Is there a way to use URL parameters to cut down on the workload? Ideally I'd have one map and one Experience Builder and all I'd have to do is add on operationname=operationx...similar to how it's worked for me the time I tried it in dashboards.

Some further context once this is all done I add it in as part of a gallery in the Hub.

Thanks in advance for your help and any ideas.

You can filter data sources according to the documentation you linked, but it sounds like you want URL parameters to interact with the widgets. I don't think it's possible. It's listed in the product road map:
