Goal

When using the Oracle BI Mobile App Designer to create your own app, if you apply a filter after drilling down on a report, should that filter be applied when you click on the back button to drill up?

For example, on an iPad Mini, successfully drill through a series of reports until reaching the lowest level in the chain. As this point, click on a filter, which correctly displays the report for that one dimension value, instead of the total for the dimension. Next, click on the 'back' button to drill up to the previous report. The previous report displays correctly, however, it displays data for the total dimension, and not just for the one filtered dimension value. The expectation was that when drilling up, the higher level reports would be filtered by the selected dimension value.
