We have designed a Dashboard that uses a web data source and DashBoard designer preview it is working fine. But when we embed the report in asp.net application using platform sdk we are getting the error the widget has not been configured and data retrieval error.

Cant we use web data source in embedded dashboards?

Thank you for the update.

And i have one more request. Is it possible to change the web data source url by passing querystring parameters before rendering happens?. Is it supported?

Hi Varun, 

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion product.   
Changing the url for web data source at the time of load is an issue from our side. The fix for this issue will be available in our upcoming release which is expected at end of April,2017.   
For more information about changing the connection string using the API ‘onApplyconnection’, please refer to the below link.  
Also, we have sample shipped with the Dashboard Platform SDK. Please refer to the below sample on how to change the connection string at the runtime.   
%localappdata%\Syncfusion\Dashboard\Samples\ASP.NET MVC\TabbedViewDashboards    
Please use the following code example to change the connection string.    
In DashboardController.cs file:   
DashboardCryptoProvider provider = newDashboardCryptoProvider(EncryptionTypes.AES);    
            Connection D1C1 = new Connection { DataSources = newList<DataSourceConnectionString>() };    
            D1C1.DataSources.Add(new DataSourceConnectionString    
                Name = "DataSource1",    
                ConnectionString = "Data Source = .; Trusted_Connection = true; Initial Catalog = North; MultipleActiveResultSets = True"    
            ViewBag.Dashboard1DS1 = provider.DoEncryption(Converter.SerializeObject(D1C1));    
In aspx/cshtml file:   
dashboardObj.model.onApplyConnection = 'modifyConnectionString1';    
function modifyConnectionString1(e) {    
                       var changestring = '@ViewBag.Dashboard1DS1';    
                       e.data.modifiedConnectionStrings = JSON.stringify(changestring);
