Internal Report Parameters Dotnet core

I have successfully integrated Report Dedesigner and Report Viewer in Asp.net Core. I am testing a very simple report and all works well without parameters. With parameters when the visibility is set to true it works and I can select the parameter value form, a combobox at runtime. My problem is that I want to supply the parameter dynamically when someone clicks a link for example, i tried "hidden" parameter but I get an error "Hidden report parameters ProcessId is missing a value. Report cannot be rendered"
my parameter is called "ProcessId" it is properly defined in the RDL like so:



my view is defined as so:

and finally in my WebAPI i have the following code:

   public void OnReportLoaded(ReportViewerOptions reportOption)
            var parameters = new List();
            if (DefaultParam != null)
                parameters = JsonConvert.DeserializeObject>(DefaultParam);

            if (parameters != null && parameters.Count > 0)
                reportOption.ReportModel.DataSources.Add(new Syncfusion.Reporting.Web.ReportDataSource { Name = "ProcessId", Value = 91 });

where I harcoded the ProcessId to 91 for testing purposes, I will likely use a session variable in real life. Despite this I still get the error message  above about hidden report parameter missing,  Please what am I missing? I repeat report without parameters is ok and with visible parameters ius also ok.

Thanks in advance for your usual prompt response.

The code did not render well in my text above so I have attached screenshots of my view, RDL file and WebApi.

Hi Yoab, 

We have validated your code snippet and suspect that you are not passing value for the hidden parameter from code behind properly. We suggest you to refer the below help documentation for passing parameters from code behind. 

If you still have any issue then please share your RDL file with us, it will be helpful for us in further validation.
