How to use parameters in a dashboard? (0.28.4)

I have created a question with a parameter and successfully embedded it to my website.

When I try the same with a dashboard (including this question), I get the following error: Unknown parameter :source.

In the dashboard sharing configuration I only see This dashboard doesn't have any parameters to configure yet., but I can’t add anything. How can I configure a parameter for my dashboard?

Thanks a lot.

In the sharing section of the dashboard, if you go to Emebedding, you’ll see a section to the right hand side:

Mine is locked, so the value must be set in the embedding code. If you just want to view the dashboard, set to Editable.

Thanks for your mesage. Yes, this is what I would expect. But for Dashboard Sharing it looks like this for me:

Parameters are missing. How can I activate them?

For Question Sharing it works as expected.

Have you added the parameter into a filter dropdown?

Hi, John, I am stuck on the same issue, How did you do it? I see the same in the parameter option

@druidMetabase Have you added filters to your dashboard and connected them to the cards?
I would recommend that you read these:

thanks, I found it, Wanted to know how can I run simple SQL in Metabase with the druid, I am not able to do that, can you recommend?

@druidMetabase That is currently not possible:
