Unable to add a control to the dashboard

I created a variable and implemented it at the card level where it behaves as required. However when I try to add it to the dashboard via the adding controls icon, I get the message "Add a Variable to a Card on this Page to add a control here". I have already added the card there. When I go the edit mode for that card, I can see the variable along with other variables as well. Can someone help me on where I am going wrong?



  • I have run into this before. I had to create a quick filter that used the variable on the card and then save and close the card. After that, the dashboard recognized the variable and I was able to add it to the dashboard.

    Realised that the variable was not created by me and locked by the owner. So for others who run into this issue, create your own variable!
