    Hidden Sticky Filters/Parameters

    Hidden sticky filters and parameters are used to remember the filter/parameter values a user selects across the system, without showing up in the filters list on a dashboard.

    You can blacklist sheets for the Hidden Filter to not apply to. The name should match the sheets' name in Tableau.

    To create a hidden sticky filter/parameter:

    1. Navigate to the backend of the system (e.g. https://www.site.com/backend).
    2. Log in if prompted.
    3. Click on Settings > Tableau > Tableau Server Settings in the left-hand menu.
    4. Click the "General" tab at the top.
    5. Expand the "Sticky Filters" section and toggle on "Use Hidden Sticky Filters".
    6. Click to add a new item under hidden sticky filters or hidden sticky parameters section.
    7. Enter the name of the filter/parameter.
    8. Click the "Save" button.

    Note: Filter Blacklist have been officially deprecated - it is still available for use but no longer tested

    If you have a sheet on your dashboard that a filter should not be applied to, follow below steps to achieve this. This approach is more performant than using filter blacklists, especially if you are working with large dashboards.

    1. In Tableau Desktop (or Tableau Server Edit Mode), go to the sheet that the filter should not be applied on.
    2. Duplicate the datasource the filter field(s) comes from.
    3. Replace the existing fields on your sheet with the fields from the duplicated datasource.
    4. Rename the filter field, indifferrent whether used on your sheet or not. Note: If you are not using the filter field on your sheet, you may as well delete it from your duplicated datasource. By renaming/deleting it, you ensure that the filter request will have no effect on this specific sheet.
    5. Repeat for all other fields the sheet should not be filtered by.
    6. Repeat for all sheets that should not listen to the filter(s).
    7. Republish your dashboard.
