Limiting drill-into options

By default, all dimensions are visible when implementing drill-into data discovery, but you can limit the available fields to a smaller subset.

To limit the fields available for drill-into to a smaller subset, you must place these fields onto the Drill shelf. When specifying a limit for Choropleth Map fields, these fields must be Geo Type fields, or cast to Geo Type.

  1. With the dashboard in Edit mode, click the (pencil/edit) icon of the visual to edit it.

    In this example, we added the fields un_region and un_subregion.

  3. Save and Close the visual.

If you use the drill-into option, the menu shows only the fields you specify. In this example these are: un_region and un_subregion.
