Limitations

Chartio’s Native UI Elements

Native UI elements (date sliders, categorical drop downs, etc.) and dashboard drilldowns are disabled for embedded dashboards. This functionality is instead replaced with the more flexible env variables in the JWT payload which allows robust filter and drill capabilities based on UI elements native to the embedding application.

URL Length

The URL length of the payload cannot exceed that which browsers support, which is 2,038 characters for Internet Explorer browsers. This means there are roughly 1,700 characters available for hidden variable definitions. This is more than enough for most applications.
