I have several charts and tables in one dashboard. They all have one common dimension filter.
Is there a way of editing this filter in one of the sections, and have the rest of them pick it up? So either a change filter once and apply everywhere, or have all other sections listen for a particular filter change (similar to publishing actions).
Solved! Go to Solution.
Cheers for that Matt - does what I want.
Is there any possibility of displaying the form on the actual report?
Or is there a way of the user updating the filter/form from within the report rather than having to go back?
Yes, but once a selection has been made you always have to go back to get the form displayed again in case you want to change the selection.
I was wondering if there is an alternative that allows you to change the value without going back.
Matt, Cosmin, and Sebastian have all provided viable answers. What I do in this situation is add a table section somewhere on the DMI and show only one Dimension type, which you'd want to filter on, (Client Site, IP Address, Software Service, Application, etc) and no Metric. Then, I use publishing actions to have it push my mouse-clicked selection as a filter to the other sections.
In my screenshot, the graph on the right uses Application as a filter and the graph updates for any application I select in the table.
Too bad. Than I would do as Brett suggested.When you upgrade to 12.4.10+ you will just change section type and that's it, because everything else will be ready. One thing to remember though: filtering bar does not allow to define drilldown links as any click on dimension name invokes "apply filter" action immediatelly.
