Mandatory filters


Hi folks,

I think this question may have been asked and answered before, but I could not find a match during my search.

I have a requirement to have a mandatory filter on a folder, which is well and good. Any time the users select objects from that folder, they get prompted. However, the problem is that sometimes they might manually drag the object(on which the filter is built) into the filter panel and enter a value. In this case, we do not want the filter to prompt when they run the query. Also there are reports built on top of this Universe and we don't want the filter prompts to show up when the managed reports are run.

I'm using Information Designer, BI platform 4.0 SP6.
