Is there any way to hide selected dashboard filters for an embedded dashboard?

This problem has come about because of problems with passing long lists of user attribute values for an access filter on the URL, and the resulting URL is too long (before anybody suggests - cannot use groups because it is not possible to know these values in advance)

In our case, the dashboard has two filters. Both of the filters are required for using the dashboard within the Looker web UI, but only one is required for the embedded dashboard

This would be useful for us as well. We have linked dashboards passing around filter values that are just strings of numbers, and we would like this not to be part of the customer experience.

Would user attributes fit your use case?

Please correct me if I’m wrong, but user_attributes need to be mapped manually to each user/group, right?

create a theme in the admin section and turn off filters for theme, make use of this theme in embed - its all or nothing though.
