Filter many offline data sources with one filter

Hi Everyone

I've built an application with discovery but I had to do some modifications in designer; so I exported it

I had 3 datasets in Discovery so now I have 3 Offlines datasources in Designer

I'm able to filter many data sets if they are all comming from the same data source, but if I tried to filter a datasource with an item comming from another datasource, it doesn't work (In Discovery I etablished a dataset link between these 3 datasets but apparently it's totally useless)

Any idea of how could I do that?

Thank for your help

    Most of the filter propagation of Discovery (e.g. Story and Page level filters) and maybe also dataset links are done by the Story component for the corresponding UI interactions.

    If you filter a datasource by script, such propagation might not happen automatically - thus you would need to extend the script to do the corresponding filtering also for the other datasources.

    The filter panel has a property with additional data sources that is should apply the filter on as well. Maybe this helps.

    Most likely the dimension or even member names are different. Then you will need to write some scripts.
