    Is there a way to override a filter

    Yigang Chen

      Hi,

       

      I created a report in tableau desktop. The source data of the report is from database. There are multiple reports in the database; which are distinguished by report_id. The tableau desktop displays one single report, picked by a filter on job_id. If I want to view a different report, I change the job_id filter.

       

      Then I published it to tableau server for sharing. On the tableau server, however, I am unable to choose a different report to display. I tried attaching something like "?job_id=a_different_report_id" to the URL on the server, but it wouldn't change to the report I wanted.

       

      How can I manipulate filters on the server for this kind of requirement at all?

       

      Your help is greatly appreciated.
