Prompts

Prompt_Example

Environments

This optional multi-select prompt (featuring in most MMSRL reports) is often used as the parent of a cascading set of subsequent prompts. The LOV will list the CMSIDs of all available Environments. The prompt return value is CMSID, but the more descriptive Environment description along with whether the Environment supports "Enhanced IA" is also detailed in the LOV entries.

Input Controls

Input_Control_Example

Prompt Selection

Allows the user to reveal / hide the display of the Prompt Selection (can also include Input Control Selection too).

"Spaced" option

The default "Spaced" option reveals the Prompt Selection (below the report header), but also reformats lists to be more readable by adding a space between listed items.

"Show" option

The alternative "Show" option reveals the Prompt Selection (below the report header), without reformatting lists with a space between listed items.

"Hide" option

The "Hide" option hides the Prompt Selection.

Environment / CMSID

Allows the user to switch the display of Environment (within the report) between CMSID and CMS display name (as configured in MetaMiner Administrator).

Warning

Although this Input Control switches the display within the report's results, it does not affect what is listed in the Environment input control, which always lists CMSID. The same is true for the Environments prompt (during prompt selection) and the display of Environments (within the prompt selection block).

Environment

Allows the user to filter the report results to a selected CMSID.

Warning

Although this Input Control is named Environment, it always works on CMSID regardless of the prior Environment / CMSID selection.
