Turning Filters On or Off

You can turn Dashboard page filters on and off for a Dashboard page or for a specific portlet. By default, page filters are turned on.

Turning Filters On or Off for a Private Dashboard page

You can turn filters on or off for a private Dashboard page in either of the following locations:

  • In the Edit page

    To disable filters, click Set Filters Off. The Add Filter button and the filters are disabled accordingly.

    To enable filters, click Set Filters On.

  • In the private Dashboard page

    To disable filters, click Set Filters Off.

    To enable filters, click Set Filters On. If no filters are added, the Set Filters Off button is not displayed in the private Dashboard page and you can only disable filters in the Edit page.

Turning Filters On or Off for a Shared Dashboard page

As an administrator, you can turn filters on and off for a shared Dashboard page in the Edit page only. The button Set Filters On or Set Filters Off is not displayed in the shared Dashboard page regardless of whether you add filters.

Once the administrator turns filters on or off, the setting applies to everyone. However, when the filters are turned on, the filter values are still saved in the database per user.

Turning Filters On or Off for a Specific Portlet

This applies to private Dashboard pages only.

To turn filters on, click the Enable filters for portlet icon (). The Edit icon becomes disabled.

To turn filters off for a specific portlet in a private Dashboard page, click the Disable filters for portlet icon () in the portlet header. The Edit icon becomes enabled.

When you turn filters on for a private Dashboard page, the Edit icon in each portlet header becomes disabled. In order to edit portlet preference, you can do either of the following:

  • Turn filters off for the portlet, edit the portlet preference, and then turn filters on for the portlet.
  • Turn filters off for the private Dashboard page, edit the portlet preference, and then turn filters on for the whole page.
