Access Filter Wildcard

Can I use a wildcard in my access filter to allow a user to see all results, i.e. an Admin?

Yellowfin does support Wildcard support for Access Filters. This must be turned on using a query against the Configuration Database:

INSERT INTO Configuration VALUES (1,'SYSTEM','SOURCEFILTERWILDCARD','%');

where the final value represents what I want to set my wildcard as. In this case, if a user's referenceId is set to % they will see all records.

Restart your Yellowfin installation after the above query to enable the functionality.
