Changing PDT with templated filter. PDT does not rebuilt?

parameter
templatedfilter
pdt

#1

Hi there, I have a PDT where I change the “where” clause through a templated filter from an explore. As soon as I change the filter and run again, the PDT doesn’t rerun. I assumed that when the derived table part in the view file is changed the pdt would rerun. Is that expected behaviour with templated filters or am I missing something?

Hey Chris,

Using a templated filter to change the where clause of a PDT causes an entirely new table to be created. For this reason, we recommend against using templated filters with PDTs.

I’d suggest emailing support@looker.com in regards to your issue so that we can dig in and figure out whats going on :slight_smile:

Cheers,
Adina
