Smart Table is not getting updated after applying custom filter


I am facing pretty annoying issue with Smart Table, I have extended Filter with my own Filters and setting those filters in even onBeforeRebindTableExtension.

It is strange that sometimes data are shown in the table, but mostly not. If I change the filter value nothing gets update, however in Network Tab I see that data were transferred.

In case when it does show something in Smart Table if I click on GO button again table won't show anything.

here is how my Fragment looks like

<core:FragmentDefinition xmlns="sap.m" xmlns:smartfilterbar="sap.ui.comp.smartfilterbar" xmlns:core="sap.ui.core">
	<!-- Date Filter -->
	<smartfilterbar:ControlConfiguration key="YearMonthFilter" index="1" label="{i18n>label_YearMonth}" visibleInAdvancedArea="true"
		groupId="_BASIC"  >
			<Input id="YearMonth"  placeholder="JJJJMM" />


Here is my Controller Extension

sap.ui.controller("myrep.ext.controller.ListReportExt", {
onBeforeRebindTableExtension: function(oEvent) {
		var mBindingParams = oEvent.getParameter("bindingParams");
		mBindingParams.parameters = mBindingParams.parameters || {};

		// Custom Filter for Customer ID
		var sCustomerId = this.getJwtProperty("KUNNR"); // for tests it is "0000001006"
		if (sCustomerId) {
			var oCustomerFilter = new sap.ui.model.Filter("CustomerId", sap.ui.model.FilterOperator.EQ, sCustomerId);

		var oSmartTable = oEvent.getSource();
		var oSmartFilterBar = this.byId(oSmartTable.getSmartFilterId());
		var oYearMonthControl = oSmartFilterBar.getControlByKey("YearMonthFilter");

		var sYearMonth = oYearMonthControl.getValue();
		if (sYearMonth) {
			var oYearMonthFilter = new sap.ui.model.Filter("YearMonth", sap.ui.model.FilterOperator.EQ, sYearMonth);
		var oMyFilters;

		oMyFilters = new sap.ui.model.Filter({
			filters: [
			and: true

		if (oMyFilters) {


Below is the case when it works

And here is when it doesn't update

    The application runs as standalone app, which in turn is integrated via iframe into webpage. Due to security I have to pass JWT Token to backend and set CustomerId Filter for a customer which is logged in on web site.

    I found out that when I have set presentation variant with grouping it is not getting refreshed, if I remove grouping it works fine.

    It also works fine when I do not extend filterbar

    So I am not sure if it is an issue of the respective Template or is it behaving strange due to the fact it runs inside an iframe. but for now I have this workaround
