Filtering data

You must have designer-role rights to create content filters for dashboards and documents.

Xtraction enables you to add filters to dashboards or documents that can restrict the displayed data to just a subset of available information. Each filter imposes one set of conditions on a single data source. Xtraction has two types of content filters, standard and advanced:

Standard filters:

Impose an unstructured list of one or more conditions.

Save one or more conditions per filter.

Save filters as named items within the folder structures.

Apply a filter at the level of dashboard or individual component.

Apply as a default filter to a dashboard. For details, see Dashboard Designer.

Reuse saved standard filters for any number of data components.

Interact with filters by clicking the filter icon displayed in the dashboard and individual component panes.

Advanced filters:

Build a nesting structure within the filter using logic operators (AND, OR) for more complex needs.

Interact with filters by clicking the filter icon displayed in the individual component panes.

Can't be saved—are meant to be used only once.
