implement a global filter in SAP Fiori Overview Page (template generated)


we are developing an SAP Fiori Overview Page with the help of CDS Views.

For the UI we are using the template app “Overview Page” which is given by the WebIDE in SCP.

The SAPUI5 version we used for the template app is “1.44”. We are facing a problem with the Global Filters.

We are not able to set a global filter to the OVP cards. We would like to filter the date. On the OVP we use the global filter field for changing the date but if we fire the go button nothing happens.

Can you please tell us, how can we proceed in order to implement a global filter in the right way and use it in the overview page?

Thanks in advance and kind Regards,

Ermanno Cerutti

    Here is the link to the relevant documentation:

    Please confirm on the following points:

    1. Ensure that the globalFilterEntityType in manifest.json correctly points to the required entityType
    2. For the required filter field to be shown as part of the Global filter: set sap:required-in-filter="true"attribute to a field of the configured entity type in the metadata
    3. On click of Go, request you to check if a batch call was triggered (debug tools-->Network)

    One of the reasons may be that the batch call has failed. Please check
