Disable dimensions in dashboard page


In the Add chart page, I can select many dimensions(say, d1, d2, d3, d4) so the sql is like

select d1, d2, d3, d4, measures from t group by d1, d2, d3, d4;

In the dashboard page, I wish dimensions could be temporarily disabled, e.g., I remove dimension d2, so the sql run behind the scene could be like

select d1, d3, d4, measures from t group by d1, d3, d4;

It’s a common use case from my point of view because our customized data visualization front-end works in this way XD.


Hi @on99 thank you for this. So you want to disable a particular dimension for all charts on a particular dashboard?

Can you give a more concrete motivation for this so we can understand the use case a bit better?



Say if we have twenty dimensions, it is impossible to create all the charts into a dashboard. So I want to simply add a chart with all dimensions, when exploring the data we can simply click on some dimensions to disable temporarily.

Is it reasonable?
