    What is the Edit Data Source Filters function?

    Ken Gamble

      In desktop - I see an 'Edit Data Source Filters' selection - what is this?


      My hope was I could put a filter on my extract - publish it to Tableau Server - and then be able to change that filter and refresh the extract without redownloading the extract.   Right now - I have two large extracts that differ only by a filter.   when I need to make model changes (like adding a new dimension) - I have to download both - edit the model - and rerun them both locally and republish.


      It would be great to rerun locally with a small subset of data - republish - remove the filter and rerun the full extract on server.   Not sure if this function is suppose to accomplish this or not.
