Filter scope

Cloudera Data Visualization uses filters and parameters to change the analysis criteria at run-time by specifying the data selected for the visuals. Filter scope determines the level at which filters are active.

Filter scope has the following three options:

Explicit scope

Explicit scope is defined when a dashboard or visual sends out parameters to other visuals, and the visuals accepts these parameters in their Filters shelf. This can be enabled at the level of each visual.

Explicit scope is expected to be used sparingly, for a small number of visuals in each dashboard that represent a high-level look at a metric and that should not be filtered by visible filters.

The scope of click behavior is explicit.

  • Setting explicit scope for filters
  • Using parameters with explicit scope

Dataset scope

Dataset scope filter applies to all visuals in a dashboard that do not have explicit scope turned on. Filters with dataset scope apply to all visuals in the dashboard that are using the same dataset. This is the default for new filters.

  • Sending parameters with dataset scope

App scope

App scope automatically filters all dashboards in the app. For more information, see Setting app scope for filters.
