Filter widgets on dashboards

Cloudera Data Visualization uses filters and parameters to change the analysis criteria at run-time by specifying the data selected for the visuals. A filter is a control element that is tied to underlying column values from a table.

While building a dashboard, you can add filter widgets to the Filters area of the dashboard. Alternatively, you can create and add a custom filter to the dashboard. After you define a custom filter, you can use it on the shelves of the visuals to dynamically update the output.

For instructions on how to create and work with filter widgets, see the articles in Using filter widgets on dashboards.
