Is there a possibillity how to assign today's day as a default if input parameter is empty?

On my Mashup I have date picker (format MM/DD/YYYY). There is default value field but to me it looks like I can only hard code one particular date. How to assign current day (today) as a default? If this is not possible is it possible to resolve it in data feed? How?

Thank you

You need to be using MashZone v2.3.

Create a data feed using the single value Information operator and select the Today's Date option. Use the Value to data feed operator to create a single value output containing today's date. Assign this data feed to your time filter. The time filter will then default to today's date.

Note that if you are using MashZone v2.2, this feature is not available.

Hope this helps.

Hi there,

Is there, in Connect (Aware), an option to input the date of today as a parameter in a datafeed?

Hope to hear from you.

Kind regards,

There is a "runtime info" operator that you can use in a data feed. That operator can provide the current date. You can attach it as you do with user inputs.

Is that what you are looking for?
