Problem with URL Parameters

I am having an issue with pulling URL Parameters for use in a dropdown. I need to create a uniques url using parameter keys. The keys then will be used in a dropdown that will then filter a repeating group.

I am using the key, ministry_filter and my url parameters are defined as as option set, url_parameters. In the picture below, if a user changed the dropdown, it send the parameter to the url. This part works.

However the repeating group lookup is not working. When I define the parameter name, it accepts everything (see first image below). However, when I do the lookup, it is red and will not let me complete the lookup (2nd image below).

Assuming that Ministry is a Data Type…

You need to “Do a search for” and then search for the value in the url parameter.

It is an Option Set

Here is my lookup

Parameter name should be "ministry_fill[...]" as in text you’re passing in the image 1 and then the type has to match the ministry data type i.e the option set

The name parameter name is cut off in the image. the name is ministry_filter. That part is working fine.

The Option Set Ministry display is set to text.

What is the type of the “ministry” field ?
Text?

noo

I meant it should be like this

That was it. Changing it to Option Set “Ministry” instead of text solved the problem. Thanks!
