Check similar parameters in a view
This article describes the Check Similar option which makes it easy to connect a filter or view parameter to multiple metric sets.
Suppose you have multiple metric sets displayed on a dashboard where each one makes use of the same or a compatible hierarchy (e.g., OrderDate). When you first add a filter, compatible hierarchies are automatically connected in all of the visualizations you had selected. After the filter is first added, you can still choose to connect to all compatible hierarchies in one step.
2. Using the Filter Visualizations panel
Open the Filter Visualizations panel by choosing Connect Filters in the toolbar.
Expand the hierarchy you want to connect to (e.g., OrderDate) to find its associated parameter (e.g., OrderDate (RangeDateTime, AllHierarchyValues)).
Right-click on this parameter and select Check Similar from the context menu, or select the parameter and click Check Similar from the toolbar.
Parameters of hierarchies from other metric sets of the same type and with the same unique name will be automatically checked for you.
This functionality is also applicable to measures - in this case, compatible measures are those of the same data type.
3. Using the Parameters window
You can also perform the automatic connection from the Parameters window.
Locate your view parameter in the window. Right-click on the view parameter and select Edit from the menu, or select the view parameter and click Edit from the toolbar.
Expand one of the hierarchies or measures you want to connect to until you see its associated parameter. Right-click on this parameter and select Check Similar from the menu, or select the parameter and click Check Similar from the toolbar.
Parameters from other metric sets of the same type and with the same unique name (in the case of a hierarchy) will be automatically checked for you.
