Great tool - few questions though

Hi,

just started using Metabase. It seems to be very easy to install and start using. I am impressed. However I have the following questions - can someone who is using metabase for a while maybe help answering those?

  1. Can we pass a report filter value through parameter in URL?
  2. Can I display report using IFRAME?
  3. Is it possible to integrate the tool into SSO (SAML)?
  4. Can we get the dashboards/reports out? By scheduled email or save as or something? Does it support report bursting - send person A1 report but filter on region R1 (report emailing can be driven by parameter)?

Thanks for help!

Regards,

Petr

Hey there @ppetr82,

Thanks for checking out Metabase! I can hopefully answer a few of these for you.

  1. Dashboard wide filters are present in URLs but we don’t currently provide the same for reports. I’ve opened an issue for that here. https://github.com/metabase/metabase/issues/3282
  2. Not currently, however we’re interested in trying to provide features like this so if you have requirements or thoughts about this feel free to chime in here https://github.com/metabase/metabase/issues/1380
  3. We support SSO via Google at the moment but are interested in extending this to other options as well. (See https://github.com/metabase/metabase/issues/3210 for this.
  4. We allow you to send automated updates to Slack or via Email with our Pulses feature. See http://www.metabase.com/docs/v0.19.3/users-guide/09-pulses.html for more info.

Let me know if you have any more questions.

Hi kdoh,

thanks a lot for your replies. We will be looking into metabase more closely in the following days/weeks.
