Example Response


In the response object, the Result property contains a property called Filters, which contains an array of objects, one for each filter. Each object has the following properties:

  • caption contains the display value for the filter.

  • type contains the filter type, if it exists. This can be "calc" or can be the name of a time function. In other cases it is empty.

  • value contains the filter specification, which is the logical identifier for the filter. For information on the filter specification, see POST /Info/FilterMembers/:datasource/:filterSpec.
