Cache Filter/Parameter Options

Curator has the ability to populate the filter and parameter options from the dashboard's data by using the "Get Filter Options from data". This option is normally only enabled when you have a large number of options to retrieve for the filter. The time to retrieve all these options can take a while if you have several hundred or several thousands of options. While we can't speed up the initial time, we can make subsequent requests faster. To do this enable "Cache filter/parameter options from data" after enabling "Get Filter options from data".

To enable Cache Filter/Parameter Options:

  1. Navigate to the backend of the system (e.g. https://www.site.com/backend).
  2. Log in if prompted.
  3. Click on "Tableau" in the left-hand menu.
  4. Click on the "Filters" or "Parameters" link on the left.
  5. Click to switch on the "Cache filter options from data" under the Display Options section of a filter or parameter.
  6. Select the desired cache time from the dropdown below the switch.
  7. Click the "Save" button.
