3051232 - Remove Dimension Filter API does not work with Group Filter Modes in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC) & SAP Digital Boardroom

  5. Select a data-source from the drop-down options.
  6. Add a dimension selection.
  7. Click on the add filters button and select an option.
  8. Click on All widgets of this data-source radio button from the option apply filters to.
