OBM HTML Browser does not filter by grouped elements

OBM 2020.10:

After migration from OML to OBM, we have several OBM views that are structured by the “group by” function

In the old Flash based event browser it is possible to filter on these “node groups”.

However, in the HTML Event browser, filtering on such a group has no effect and events for all CIs within the view are displayed.

We need the same filter function also in the HTML Event Browser.

Yes, this is correct. It do not allow filter on group by function. After upgrade, some of the customers faced this issue and they have to recreate the views in-order to make it work.

what do you mean by "they have to recreate the views in-order to make it work.", ?

I have creates some new views with Group_By_CIT  from scratch, and for all of them the filtering on group level does not work in the HTML Event Browser, while in the "deprecated" flash event browser all works fine as before.



Admiral Admiral

For us, we use CI_collection CI type as group by, Instead we directly put CIcollection to node relationship and this works with filter. Issue is only when we use "Group_by" option in the views.

We are aware of the problem that the filtering on Virtual CI Groups  (Group by) does not work and plan to address this problem with the next patch.
