Filter editor

Use this editor to create or edit a named filter.

For more information, see:


Subject Areas

Use the "Subject Areas pane" to select the attribute column or measure column to be included in the filter. If your repository is configured for double columns, typically, you choose a display column on which to filter. However, you can choose a code column on which to filter but only if the code column is exposed in the Presentation layer in the Oracle BI EE repository. For more information on the Presentation layer, see Metadata Repository Builder's Guide for Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition.

After you select a column, the "New Filter dialog" displays where you specify the new filter's criteria.


Use the "Catalog pane" to search for and drag and drop named filters from the catalog to the Filter editor. When you add a named filter to the Filter Editor, you are given the choice of either copying a catalog reference to the named filter or copying the named filter's contents to the analysis. When you include a reference to the named filter, you cannot modify the filter. When you include a copy of the named filter, you can modify the filter's contents and either save the filter as an inline or named filter.

Saved Filter

Use this area to work with a filter just as you would in the "Filters pane."
