Changing Number of Options in Search Output of Dashboard Filters

In a dashboard filter, you can change the maximum number of options that appear during search. This limits the display of options for datasets with a very large variability.

To change the number of items that are displayed when you search for options in the filter, follow these steps:

  1. In dashboard View mode, hover over a filter that is already added to the dashboard, until the controls appear on the top right.

    • Remember previous selections
  4. Enter a value in the Maximum number of items to display when user searches for values. Default is 1000.
  5. Click Apply.
  6. In the following example, let us search for options that contain the letter A. Notice the difference in number of items displayed when we changed the Maximum number of items to display when user searches for values setting from 2 to 5.
