Date filter doesn't work with reverse proxy


I’m having a problem using date filter inside the dashboard.

After I use Nginx as a reverse proxy, date filter does not work,
when I tried to embed this dashboard in other application.

Does anybody know if there is anything I have to change some setting?

Kind regards,

I cannot reproduce.
I don’t know if you have set the Site URL correctly.
Which database are you querying?
Which type of questions is it?
Which type of filters is it?
Does this also happen, when you use the embedding - not just in the example window?

@flamber Hello
I think I changed the Site URL correctly, when I configured Nginx as the reverse proxy.

The database I query is PostgreSQL.
For the type of questions, I chose “the simple question mode”, then “visualization” is “Bar” (x-ray: timestamp, y-ray: value), and filter with column:ID.
and the type of filter is “Time filters: All Options”, and set “Current” & “Day”.

This also happened when I displayed the embedded graph in other application.

Post your Nginx configuration.
Post your Site URL.
What is in the URL, when you use normal dashboard vs embedded dashboard?
The problem is not Metabase - it’s the reverse-proxy setup.

Nginx configuration:

Site URL

I’m not sure what the screenshot is supposed to show - that Public sharing, not Embedding.
Check you Nginx logs and perhaps enable debug logging, so you can see more information.

Sorry for the screenshot. Here is the embedded dashboard,
the date filters work on the dashboard in Metabase, but don’t work on the embedded dashboard in other application.
I’ll check the debug log of Nginx.
