Filter shelves

Cloudera Data Visualization uses filters and parameters to change the analysis criteria at run-time by specifying the data selected for the visuals. Filters define the subsets of data that is examined in a visual. By placing either measures or dimensions on the filter shelf of a visual, you can exclude or include specific values or a range of values from the data used.

You can specify filters by using one of the following methods:
  • Select a value or values from a list, or through an interface specific to the data type
  • Specify an expression that represents the filtering function

For more information on filter expressions, see Syntax for using parameters.
