I'm playing around with DMI Reports in 12.4.1 and I would like to know if there's any way to show a (hidden) Section by selecting a row on a table. I'm aware of Publishing actions feature but what I'm trying to achieve it's a more "interactive" way to show Sections.
Any help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hey Rafaelle, I don't know if there's a supported way but I have a trick to doing so.
From the Report Definition screen, on the left (where the section name and type is listed), you can click to make the section invisible if there's no data. Then, in the section you want to start hidden, put a dummy filter for what will be published over. For example, if you're publishing an application, put 'asdf' in the filter of application for the section which needs to be blank at first. This way, it will be hidden because it has no data, but when you publish and the filter is updated, the section will appear.
Let me know if you have any issues. (I'm on my phone so I can't provide screenshots)
If someone else tried to understand that section's report definition, it may be harder for them to realize you're filtering on a ' ' as opposed to a dummy string. But otherwise, if the empty space is working for you, that should be fine.
Glad it's working out!
