Dashboard filters not retaining filters after making changes

After creating and saving a dashboard, the Looker filters do not retain their filters after making additional dashboard changes. The only workaround I have found so far to this issue is to re-create the dashboard.  I have also tried to re-add the variables to the dashboard and hope the filters stay but this rarely works.  Has anyone else run into this and if so, does anyone have a solution or a workaround?

Hi Nstrauss,


Are you saving the changes when editing?


If so, I suggest reviewing the console log of the browser to see if there is any error in background:


To open the developer console window on Chrome, use the keyboard shortcut “Ctrl+Shift+J” (on Windows) or “Option” + “J” (on Mac)





Hi Leo,


Thank you for your quick response!  I am saving the changes as I am editing but I have not checked out the console browser; I will give that a go!
