2578503 - Realms Runtime Filters Carry on to Other Reports


When running a report built with a specific Runtime Filter, select a filter and run the report. After it, try to run another report that has Runtime Filters, and the same filter is automatically applied.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Run a report and apply a Runtime Filter
  2. Open another report that also has Runtime Filter.
  3. You will see that the Runtime Filters applied to the previous report will be applied.


Runtime Filters are per session. When a filter choice is made, this remains active in the current session


This is an expected behaviour. If another report has the same field as a Runtime Filter option, the existing choice of the previous report applies.

This saves the user from having to make the same choices repeatedly.

If the "Do not show again" is chosen, and you then wish to activate the dialog, you can do this using the filters menu on the left hand side.
