Manage filters

In the Filters pane, you can preview filters and remove a prompt report that was added to the application. You can also extract prompts definitions from the prompt report. The extraction feature is useful, for example, if you want to update the prompts definitions in the application without adding the prompt report again.

  • You added a prompt report to an application tab.

  1. On the Designer welcome page, point to an application, and then click Edit.
  2. Select a tab with filters added.

  3. On the application sidebar, click  Filters.

    The Filters pane appears.

  4. To update the prompts definitions, click Parse prompts list.

    Note: After parsing the prompts list, the filters are disabled for all the reports to which they were added. For details about how to re-enable filters, see Enable filters for IBM Cognos content.

  5. To preview the filters, click Preview prompts page.
  6. To remove a prompt report from the tab, click  Remove prompts page.
  7. On the menu bar, go to File > Save. Enter a description of your changes, and then click Save. Then, click Close.

    To make the changes available to consumers, publish the application (File > Save and Publish).
