Template Variables in Embedded Question

I'm building up a bunch of example queries on my metabase install and I'm finding a limitation in embedding previous questions into new ones.

Say I have Question #1 that has several template variables in it. If I use this question in a new question (by using {{#1}}), this new question doesn't automatically pick up the variables from the original question.

This also happens if I use a Snippet. Any template variables in the snippet will not show up in the UI of the question using it. This use-case is less interesting to me, but I presume that the issues are related.

Is there a way to have this work as I expect? If not, what is the expected usage pattern?

Hi @mynameisfiber
"embedding" means something very different in Metabase. You are referring to this:

It's currently not possible to reference a parameter in a saved question (nested):

And snippets doesn't have an understanding of variables - it's just for text/SQL:

This might be worth a read for you:

@flamber thanks for the reply! That is exactly the issue. I've upvoted and am following the discussion. I hope this can get resolved at some point because it really hits at a major use-case of metabase for me at least -- to allow powerusers to create simple tools for intermediate users to explore our SQL data.
