Report Model – Data Filter

I am not talking about the security item filter that applies to a specific user (or a group of users) here. I want to create a data filter that applies to a specific entity(s) whenever that entity is used in a query, regardless of the userid.

Follow these steps.

Create a filter for the entity.

Select an entity and a field, and give it a condition.

The property “MandatoryFilter” is automatically set for the entity, and all the children entities. This will require users to always create a filter in the Report Builder. Not sure if I should change this behavior….
