Excluding from an existing Dashboard filter using BLOX

Hello,

I had an earlier challenge which was solved by Daniel (@rapidbisupport). Thank you!

Now, I'm hoping to take this one step further. After the Dashboard filter has been created, I'd like to create another BLOX button to remove specific filter entries from the list (either remove from the include or exclude) using a similar method as previous.

Here is the link to the last request / post:

Thank you in advance!

Hi @ssoltz ,

All possible - what do you want to remove from the filters?

"remove specific filter entries from the list"

I mean you could set up a second BloX that looks like:

{
    "style": "",
    "script": "",
    "title": "",
    "showCarousel": true,
    "body": [
        {
            "type": "TextBlock",
            "id": "",
            "class": "",
            "text": "<button id='removeExclusionsFilterButton'>Remove Exclusions</button>"
        }
    ],
    "actions": []
}

and then remove members from the filter related to another 'target pivot with a list of exceptions' like this in the widget script:

const targetWidgetWithExclusionsResultOid = '65c2d47b874ecd0042b02068'
const targetFilterTitle = 'CountryName'

dashboard.on('domready', () => {
    $('#removeExclusionsFilterButton').on('click', () => {
        const targetWidgetWithExclusionsResult = prism.activeDashboard.widgets.$$widgets.find((w) => { return w.oid === targetWidgetWithExclusionsResultOid })
        const targetWidgetResponse = targetWidgetWithExclusionsResult.queryResult.loadService.data.data[0].data.map((r) => { return r.value })
        const targetFilter = prism.activeDashboard.filters.flatten().find((f) => { return f.jaql.title === targetFilterTitle })
	delete targetFilter.jaql.filter.all
        targetFilter.jaql.filter.members = targetFilter.jaql.filter.members.filter((i) => { return !targetWidgetResponse.includes(i) } 
        prism.activeDashboard.refresh()
    })
})

But difficult to provide more info without more specifics. From memory you had a video the first time that outlined the requirement really well - otherwise happy to jump on with Sisense Services | Free 30-Minute Sisense Consultation (rapidbi.com.au).

Let me know how you go?

Thanks,

Daniel,

I am working on this currently. I will make a video shortly if I cannot get this to work (no luck so far).

So, my confusion currently is that the original solution you created for me was embedding the script in the Dashboard script not a widget script as you state above. So, I'm either trying to use this as a widget script (in this case, which widget...the new button widget? This is not working)...or combining this new script with the old Dashboard script (this is not working yet as I do not know the syntax).

Thank you!

Daniel @rapidbisupport ,

Here is the new video:

I have a feeling your new solution paired with the old one will work. My biggest question is where to put the script. The old one was placed as a Dashboard script. So, I either have to merge old code with new there or understand which widget to add the script to.

By the way, here is my hacked version of your code to create the same filtered records on equivalent Dashboard filters from two different datasets:

const targetWidgetWithResultOid = '65c79382dbb6a200328554a3'
const targetFilterTitle = 'CAD Inc Num Filter'
const targetFilterTitle1 = 'EMS Inc Num Filter'


dashboard.on('domready', () => {
    $('#filterButton').on('click', () => {
        const targetWidgetWithResult = prism.activeDashboard.widgets.$$widgets.find((w) => { return w.oid === targetWidgetWithResultOid })
        const targetWidgetResponse = targetWidgetWithResult.queryResult.loadService.data.data[0].data.map((r) => { return r.value })
        const targetFilter = prism.activeDashboard.filters.flatten().find((f) => { return f.jaql.title === targetFilterTitle })
		const targetFilter1 = prism.activeDashboard.filters.flatten().find((f) => { return f.jaql.title === targetFilterTitle1 })
	delete targetFilter.jaql.filter.all
        targetFilter.jaql.filter.members = targetWidgetResponse
        prism.activeDashboard.refresh()
	delete targetFilter1.jaql.filter.all
        targetFilter1.jaql.filter.members = targetWidgetResponse
        prism.activeDashboard.refresh()

    })
})

Thank you AGAIN for your assistance! 

Thanks for the Chat today @ssoltz ! Was great to jump on a call and I hope you got some value out of it.

As discussed, looks like I missed a bracket in the original response, causing your adapted script to fail.

The changes required are as below:

const targetWidgetWithExclusionsResultOid = '65c2d47b874ecd0042b02068'
const targetFilterTitle = 'CountryName'

dashboard.on('domready', () => {
    $('#removeExclusionsFilterButton').on('click', () => {
        const targetWidgetWithExclusionsResult = prism.activeDashboard.widgets.$$widgets.find((w) => { return w.oid === targetWidgetWithExclusionsResultOid })
        const targetWidgetResponse = targetWidgetWithExclusionsResult.queryResult.loadService.data.data[0].data.map((r) => { return r.value })
        const targetFilter = prism.activeDashboard.filters.flatten().find((f) => { return f.jaql.title === targetFilterTitle })
	delete targetFilter.jaql.filter.all
        targetFilter.jaql.filter.members = targetFilter.jaql.filter.members.filter((i) => { return !targetWidgetResponse.includes(i) } ) // MISSING BRACKET PREVIOUSLY
        prism.activeDashboard.refresh()
    })
})

Don't hesitate to reach out if we can help with anything else!

Thanks,

Daniel

Hi @ssoltz ,

You should be able to place the code directly under the initial code on the dashboard script.

This should enroll both methods to the dashboards 'domready' event - you can have multiple 'dashboard.on('domready', ()=> .....) and they won't 'overwrite each other'.

Just need to make sure none of the names assignments at the top are named the same.

Let me know how you go?

Thanks,

Daniel
