WebParts connection lost RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    We are showing 4 analytical reports in the dashboard and supplying 2 parameters to them through the connections options in the UI. But these connections are lost the moment we do any changes in the sharepoint designer advanced editor mode and save. Have anyone experienced this problem? Is there a solution to retain the webpart connections even after we do some changes in the advanced editor.

    Thanks in advance

  • Unfortunately that is the default behavior. Every time you edit and save page you will lose all connections.

    Best approach would be to make changes to the page first and then connect all the components.

  • There should be a place where this connection information is stored isnt it? Is it that everytime we save the GUID's of the webparts change and thats the reason the connections are lost? Just trying to understand why is it the default behavior. It is very cumbersome to freeze the requirements at one shot and them apply connections at the later stage. I dont think this is the good practise.
