Setting app scope for filters

Cloudera Data Visualization enables you to extend the scope of a filter so that all dashboards in the app are automatically filtered by it

All apps that contain the dashboard inherit the selections and behavior of this filter. All sheets in a dashboard also inherit the filter behavior. App scope dashboard filters appear only in the filter area, either across the top or on the left side; you cannot move them into the main grid area.

Follow these steps to set App scope filter in a dashboard:

  1. Open a dashboard in Edit mode that has a filter widget.
    If you do not have a dashboard with filters, add a new filter widget. For instructions, see Creating dataset filters on dashboards or Creating custom filters on dashboards.
  2. Hover over the top right corner of the filter widget, and click the Gear icon to configure the filter.

    The Settings modal window appears.

  3. Select the Scope tab.
  4. Set the filter visibility to App.
  5. Select the All Datasets option.
  6. Click APPLY.
    After you select the App option for visibility, the filter widget on the dashboard displays a gray triangle on the top left corner of the filter. If you hover over the triangle you can see a tooltip that says 'Has App Scope'.
