Use variable label not value in url for dashboard

Is there a way to use the variable label instead of the value in a url? For example, I have a variable named ifid. I am generating a dropdown for ifid dynamically, Generally, I keep the same labels, but the values may change.

[ {“text”: “Outside_VPN_Traffic”,“value”: “18”},
{“text”: “Outside”,“value”: “19”},
{“text”: “OUTSIDE_3”,“value”: “21”},
{ “text”: “Outside_2”, “value”: “20” } ]

The url for “Outside” ends up being: “…?var-ifid=19”. If something changes on the datasource end and Outside now has a value of 23, that link is broken. I would like to be able to use “Outside” instead of “19” for reference.
