30.2 ADD_FILTER Procedure Signature 2

This procedure creates a filter on an interactive report using a report alias.


The use of this procedure in a page rendering process causes report download issues (CSV, HTML, Email, and so on). When a user downloads the report, the interactive report reloads the page with download format in the REQUEST value. Any interactive report settings changes (such as add filter or reset report) are done in partial page refresh. Thus, the download data may not match the report data user is seeing. For this reason, Oracle recommends only using this procedure in a page submit process.


    p_page_id       IN NUMBER,
    p_region_id     IN NUMBER,
    p_report_column IN VARCHAR2,
    p_filter_value  IN VARCHAR2, 
    p_operator_abbr IN VARCHAR2 DEFAULT NULL, 
    p_report_alias  IN VARCHAR2 DEFAULT NULL );

The following example shows how to use the ADD_FILTER procedure to filter an interactive report with a report alias of CATEGORY_REPORT in page 1, region 2505704029884282 of the current application with DEPTNO equals 30.

        p_page_id       => 1,
        p_region_id     => 2505704029884282,
        p_report_column => 'DEPTNO',
        p_filter_value  => '30',
