Filter "apply" button doesn't do anything until an option is changed when autorun report is disabled

Bernard Davis shared this problem 2 months ago
Defect Fixed

We have a lot of reports with "autorun report on load" set to off, so the user will be required to set filter values and press the "apply" button (previously labelled "go") in order to load results. A lot of the time, however, the user might be happy with the default filter values and want to load the report without changing any filters.

In previous versions of Yellowfin, you could press the "go" button to load results using the default filter values. Now, however, if you open a report where autorun is disabled, the "apply" button doesn't do anything, and you have to press the "reset" button instead. The "apply" button will only work if you change at least one filter option.

Is this expected behaviour? It doesn't seem intuitive for a user to have to press reset to apply the default filter values when they open a report.

We are using the latest version, 9.2.2. The previous version we used, 8.0.3 had the expected behaviour of the "go" button running the report without having to change default filter values.

Hi Bernard,


Thank you for sending through your message.


I've gone ahead and managed to replicate the issue. I have logged this with the Developers who will assess it shortly.


In the meantime, there doesn't seem to be a workaround to this behaviour, other than to maybe remove default values to remove confusion, or toggle auto run on. I understand that this might not be the easiest to implement en masse.


I will keep you updated with any changes and updates to the Developer Task. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any further questions.


Kind regards,

Simon

Hi Simon,

The Apply button is now working as expected, however the "Autorun Report on Load" option is no longer having any effect. All reports are autoloading, even if that option is turned off for the report. Should I open a new ticket for this issue?

Thanks
