Analytical List Page - Visual Filters

Does anyone have any good info about setting up visual filters in the ALP? I've worked out how to configure the grid and the chart, and the compact filter, but I don't know how to setup the visual filter.

There seems to be a distinct lack of info about this... I'm guessing since this Fiori element is really new, we shouldn't expect much in the way of blogs and guides.

Has anyone found any guides or blogs about this, are any of you working on a guide or a blog?

Hi Neil

Fiori elements are over a year old, but yes the ALP is still quite new.

For starters you need to set "defaultFilterMode" to "visual" in the manifest.json

Then look at annotations SelectionFields, CommonValueList, PresentationVariant, and Chart.

They work together to create the visual filters.

Hope that gets you thinking...

Thanks Jocelyn... I was kinda hoping you'd see this post ;)

I'll check those out.


ok, I need more guidance please ... I see where to put the "defaultFilterMode": "visual" in the manifest file, but not exactly sure how to do the others?

I have some SelectionFields setup in my CDS, they show up in the compact filter but where to setup the other annotations?

I can't find the CommonValueList ? It doesn't show up in ADT at either view or item level in the CDS... does this need to be maintained locally in the annotation file in WebIDE?

What about PresentationVariant, and Chart, where do they go?

Sorry if these seem like silly questions, it's just not obvious to me :)
