How to use filter in Analytics Path Framework
I am recently doing self study on Analytics Path Framework and as a beginner I have finished some “Hello world” exercise and I have written down my steps to finish those “Hello world” project in these two blogs:
- Build Chart and Table representation via Analytics Path Framework
- Access the OData service exposed by your CDS view via Smart Business Tile in S4HANA system
In this blog, I will learn how to use filter in Analytics Path Framework. Source Code of used CDS views could be found from previous blog mentioned above.
In APF Configuration Modeler, there is a filter with type Smart Filter Bar automatically generated.

The response is used to render filter drop down list when hyperlink is clicked:
When we deselect Z02 and click OK button:
The filtering OData request is sent to backend to get filtered data. The chart is refreshed accordingly.
