Report Definition Search Criteria is not retained after report execution
We have a requirement to create a generic report with multiple search parameters criteria and let the user modify it according to their needs. The report gets executed, however the section with the search criteria (pzPromptFiltersGrid) is not retained on the screen to be able to modify the query. Is there a way to retain it after the report execution? See attachment.
Hi Abhishek. Thank you for your reply. My report is parameterized and after the report ran, the section with the criteria is changed to link with the list of parameters (without value) as you can see on the attachment, and users want to see the section with the entered values. This is OOB behavior. Any idea how to change it without creating custom section.
Is your motivation here to give the user the ability to change more than one filter value and re-run the report?
If so, I don't think it can be done without a significant customization of the report viewer. A lot of the included sections are final, which complicates matters.
You could add a re-run button that duplicates the initial execution and brings up the pzPromptFiltersGrid section with the current filter values, but it may be simpler to just have the user re-run the report from scratch.
Thank you for your reply. Actually, yes, I would like to let the user to see the entered criteria and being able to change it, however if it requires a lot of customization, what I'm trying to avoid, I'll let them to re-enter criteria.
