How to Use "OR" Filter Condition on a Widget Level | JavaScript

This article provides an example JavaScript code snippet to have the ability to use the "OR" filter condition on a widget level. Currently, the Filter Relations Editor in Sisense allows users to set up dashboard filters with "OR" relations. If there is a need to configure the "OR" filter relation between two filters at the widget level, this JavaScript code snippet might help to achieve your goal.

How to use it?

  1. Open a widget in edit mode by pressing the pencil icon. 
  2. Click the three dots menu and choose "Edit Script."
  3. Copy and paste the following script into the "Edit Script" section.
  4. Adjust const filtersOr = ['Category', 'Condition'] with the widget filters names instead of 'Category', 'Condition'.
  5. Press "Save".


const filtersOr = ['Category', 'Condition']

widget.on('beforequery', (scope,args)=>{
	let filters = args.query.metadata.filter(f => f.panel === 'scope' && filtersOr.includes(f.jaql.title))
	filters = => f.instanceid)
	args.query.filterRelations = {
        "operator": "OR",
        "left": {
            "instanceid": filters[0]
        "right": {
            "instanceid": filters[1]
