    url filter exclude values

    Frank Sagmeister

      Hi,

       

      I know you can filter on items by passing in a query string parameter through the url in tableau server.

       

      In our scenario, we may have hundreds of values that we want to include in the filter and only one that we want to exclude (have unchecked by default).  Is there a way to do this through the url.  I am wary of including all of the values that we want to include in the filter because the url may become too long.  So my question is two fold:

       

      1. Can you exclude an item via url.  For example;  tableaureport.com?service_area<>Outside.

      2. If filtering via javascript is there a limit on how long the filter string can be?

       

      Anybody ever done this before?

       

      Thanks.
