Allow control over the number of suggestions that populate on dashboards

(Ryan Schork) #1

Currently the suggestions: parameter defaults to a query on the distinct values of that dimension LIMIT 1000 to provide as options (SELECT DISTINCT field_name FROM TABLE LIMIT 1000).

However, the front-end limits the number of suggestions that populate when you click into a filter to 100. This occurs even when you specify a hardcoded list for the suggestions parameter or a suggest explore.

It would be awesome to be able to control both of these parameters 1) the number of distinct values fetched from the backend for suggestions 2) the number of options displayed when you click into the filters box.
