Configuration Block ignores the filter with the error message: Could not configure filter for column 'XXXX'. There is no data table with name 'YYYY'.
When using the Configuration Block to open the analysis file, the filters are ignored with the error message as shown below.
# Configuration Block used in the 'Open Analysis from Library' task in Automation Services SetFilter(tableName = "BASEBALL", columnName = "NAME", values = "Alan Wiggins");
# Configuration Block used in the Web Client URL of an analysis file &configurationBlock=SetFilter(tableName%20%3D%20%22BASEBALL%22%2C%20columnName%20%3D%20%22NAME%22%2C%20values%20%3D%20%22Alan%20Wiggins%22)%3B
Linked data report There are some inconsistencies and some data might not be shown accurately. Configuration block issues: Could not configure filter for column NAME. There is no data table with name 'BASEBALL'.
This behavior occurs due to the absence of a filter column (used in the Configuration Block) from the filters panel. To resolve this issue, we need to add the filter column in the filters panel.
This behavior can occur in the following two scenarios:
- When the data table is external, you need to create a filter (Click on 'Data In Analysis' Icon >> Hover over the required Column >> Click on filter icon >> Click on 'Click to Create Filter') which gets added in the filters panel.
- This can also happen if the filters are managed manually and if that particular filter column (used in the Configuration Block) is removed from the filters panel. To add the filter column, right-click in the filters panel >> Organize Filters >> Select the Checkbox corresponding to the required filter column >> Click OK.
