You only need to add the following to the end of your dashboard URL

&fv0=youraccount which will look like this ?queryScope=userFolders&fv0=youraccount

There's no need for a ? again before your filter as you already have parameters (and a ?) in your URL for queryScope and simply just need to add a new parameter with & as the documentation mentions

To add filters to the URL, use this structure:

&—Denotes a new parameter in the URL. If no other parameters are present in the URL, then substitute ? in place of &.

Likewise, the value you pass into the URL must exist in the filter dropdown for it to work - otherwise, it displays a this filter URL is invalid.

  • okay, then it's showing "The filter URL is invalid, please try again" Apr 7, 2021 at 11:57
  • are you typing this in to the URL bar or how are you testing this? A screenshot in your question would be helpful Apr 7, 2021 at 11:58
  • This is my url ending with: /view?queryScope=userFolders&fv0=hema Apr 7, 2021 at 11:59
  • Now, I have added the screenshot to my question. Kindly check Apr 7, 2021 at 12:01
  • Did you check that whatever account name you're passing in the filter actually exists in the dropdown for Account Name in the dashboard filter? I only get that error if the value does not exist in the filter. Apr 7, 2021 at 12:26

The issue is that the filter value you are passing HAS to be a pre-defined selectable value in the dashboard filter(s).

You can not pass in anything you please.

I have created a reasonable solution (there are scaling limits) to this issue if you want to check it out on my blog here https://salesforceconfig.com/show-any-accounts-data-on-a-universal-dashboard/
