Removing a Filter from a Visual or Dashboard

You can remove row-level filters for the data in a visual. When all the visuals in a dashboard use data from the same data source, you can remove row-level filters for all the visuals in the dashboard.

The process for removing a filter from a visual or dashboard is the same for row-level filters, wild card filters, group filters, and filters applied by a keyset or a saved filter. The applied filters for a visual or dashboard appear on the Filters sidebar and are removed in the same way. To delete a saved filter or a keyset from your environment, see Maintaining Saved Filters and Using Keysets.

To remove a filter from a visual or dashboard:

  1. Select the filter icon on the visual or dashboard to access the appropriate filter sidebar.

    • To access the visual filter sidebar, select its filter icon () or select Edit Visual from the visual menu () and then select on the sidebar menu.
    • To access the dashboard filter sidebar, select its filter icon (). The dashboard-level filter icon is available only when all the visuals are from the same data source.

    The Filters sidebar appears showing any filters that have been applied.

  2. Locate the filter you want to remove in the list on the Filters sidebar.

  3. Select associated with the filter. If you remove the filter at the dashboard level, it is removed from all the visuals in the dashboard. Otherwise, it is removed only from the selected (active) visual.
