issue with field_filter extending an imported dashboard

I am extending a dashboard from a remote imported project. I have the base dashboard and extended dashboard with the views from the imported project in a new model. I have done no other modifications to the base dashboard; I am testing extends before actually extending something in the dashboard. I get an error when I validate the lookml:

field_filter is using a field outside of the current model ({new model here}). The field "agg_paid_analytics.calendar_type_selector" may not be reachable.


This dashboard has no issues with the model from the imported project.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

I also just encountered this error. I imported a model / some views from one project into another and added a filter to a visualization based on one of the imported models. Works totally fine with a GUI-built dashboard but when I try to do this with LookML I get the following error: field_filter is using a field outside of the current model (orbit). The field "stargazer.starred_date" may not be reachable.

I’m getting the same issue. Did anyone work out what the cause was? The dashboard works fine as a standard GUI but gives that error when in LookML
