Applies to:

Business Intelligence Interactive Dashboard - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


After assigning ID column for descriptive column,
1) unable to use double column feature in filters to
- display both code values and the display values ('Select by Code Column' option)
- specify if the column is to be filtered by code values or display values ('Filter by Code Column')
2) unable to use 'Select by Code Column' option in prompts


Included Code Column and Enable user to 'select by Code Column' feature is not available in analytics while creating dashboard prompt.
However they are able to use descriptor column which suggest everything is fine from rpd side.
Need to check why those check boxes are not there and why a double column is behaving as a regular column.
