Using connection parameters with Vertica connector

Hi,

I would like to use parameters in order to easily switch between two Vertica databases (dev and prod) I have as data sources.
This post describes what I am trying to achieve, but with Vertica this seems not to be possible.
Basically, the point that I am missing is this: 

With the Vertica connector this feature is not available: the only thing I can do is directly writing the server name and the db name. Am I doing something wrong? If not, is there any workaround to get to the result?

Thanks.

Hi @q01_1gt ,

It is not supported to use parameter when connect to vertica in Power BI. Currently, we still have to input the server name and database name manually.
