Could you please check and advice.


Many thanks in advance.

Hi Urvashi,


Thank you for your question.


Yellowfin 7.1 is not currently supported, however, I will attempt to help with your issue. So that I can troubleshoot the correct Yellowfin release, could you please send me your build and version number found at your /info.jsp page? I am unfamiliar with this feature, however, it seems that it deliberately might not be available at the Dashboard level. I would suggest looking in the Analytic and Filter options in your Dashboard for configuration options.


Kind regards,

Simon

Thanks Simon for your response. Below are the build version details.

Application Version:7.1

Build:20160728


We are in the process of upgrading to YF 7.4 soon. Could you please check and let me know if this works in 7.4. We have explored all Analytic and Filter options in Dashboards and there is no configuration option for funnel filter in 7.1.

Thanks,

Hi Urvashi,


After having a look at some older training material, this feature seems to be a prompt feature for in list filter values. This feature exists in 7.4.12, where users are able to search in-list feature values, including at the Dashboard level.


Please also read this article before planning your upgrade as it is recommended that you upgrade to 7.2 before upgrading to 7.4.12.


Let me know if there is anything else I can help with.


Kind regards,

Hi Simon,

The issue is with the Funnel filter type only and it works fine for in-list and drop down.

Could you please check and confirm if there is some limitation in 7.1 for funnel filter type and will be resolved in 7.4.

Users are unable to select any value if the filter type is funnel on dashboard and therefore the field becomes useless to them.

Please let me know if you need more information.


Thanks,

Urvashi

Hi Urvashi,


I've done some testing and this does seem to be a restriction with Dashboards in 7.1.


I suggest using an in-list or cached filter instead.


Let me know how you go.


Kind regards,

Hi Urvashi,


Yes, the search feature is functioning as expected in 7.4. If that has answered your question, please let me know if I can go ahead and mark this ticket as completed.
