When you create an interactive filter on an extended table, there is an extra step
necessary to apply the filter to the other tables in the hierarchy.
When you create an interactive filter on a parent table,
by default the filter applies to the extended tables. For example, an interactive filter
that applies to the table [incident] automatically applies to the extended
[incident_task] table. If you create an interactive filter on the extended
[incident_task] table, an extra field applies the filter to the parent [incident] table
and to the other tables in the hierarchy.
Role required: hp_publisher_admin and report_admin. The
hp_publisher_admin role exists only for managing interactive filters. By default, it
contains no other roles and is not contained in any other roles.
Interactive filters created on extended tables also apply to
the other tables in the hierarchy.
In the Filter based on choice list, select the type of
interactive filter to create. For more information, see Available Interactive Filter types.
