How to clear report custom filters prior to display?
The client has implemented a report filter section that is reused among many of their reports. It references a top level page "CustomFilter" to hold the data selections for filtering the report. Once the report is run and then subsequently closed, the page remains on the clipboard with the previously selected values. When selecting another report to run the section displays the previous reports filters. I am looking for a way to clear that page prior to the display. When running tracer while launching the reports all the activities are basically internal or final rules. Is there a convenient place to add a hook activity that I can use to do a page new before the filter section is displayed?
pxLocalAction is deprecated in the current version of the software so the client is unwilling to go that route. I will pass along the recommendation of using the Rule-Html-Section to see if that works for them. I have rolled off the engagement, but I will pass it along and try to follow up.
