Cannot get visualization components to update dynamically with user input

I am using the newest version of RapidMiner Server.

I followed the youtube tutorial on using the RapidMiner Server to generate dynamic reports.

In this video:

It is shown that we can use user input components to dynamically pass variables to filters in a process using context macros.

I have followed the steps:
1. Made a process that has a filters for Year and Month which get their input from context macros
2. Set up a realm with categorical domains for Year (2013, 2014, 2015) and Month (01,02,03)
3. Set up variables for Year and Month
3. Used the visualization component to generate a table with the data and specified the input variables Year and Month
4. Used the user input component to select Year and Month

Problem is that nothing happens when I hit submit on the user input. The data only updates when I refresh the page.

My question is: how to make the visualization update dynamically when submitting user input, as shown in the video?

    the video you used is pretty old. There is a new way to do it dynamically.
    Have a look at this video, that might help you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0tOIeoL9VS4

    I think Martin wanted to post part 3 of the Series: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AVrALhqZ3z8

    Even though the new way of subscribing to "app objects" is way more flexible and the preferred way, let me add that the old way still works. You just need to make sure you follow every step and that you have set the correct "Process Input Variables" in the "Interaction" tab for the visualization component.
