2344901 - WFA custom member doesn't work as designed only for few Dimensions



Employment Type 1 dimension displays Headcount data in Permanent, Temporary, Casual and Other Employee Groups. when we are trying to exclude ‘Other’ employee group by means of applying a custom member filter.

This dimension does not respond to custom member filter correctly and rather than excluding ‘Other’ it actually excludes everything else and only displays ‘Other’.

This issue only occurs with the Employment Type 1 and 2 dimensions.

Rest of the dimensions works fine with this filter.


Please find the screenshot below:
