Does the access_filter get extended when I extend an explore?

Last tested: Sep 8, 2020

Yes. We don't need to setup the access filter again, once the access filter from the original explore is also considered on the extended one.

Considering the explore Users below, which contains an access filter on the field users.state:

explore: users {

view_name: users

access_filter: {

field: users.state

user_attribute: state_ext



We have are extending this explore as a User Ext explore and not defining the access filter:

explore: users_ext {

extends: [users]



The state_ext user attribute contains the Alabama value for a specific user, and both explores User and User Ext contains the user-specific data restriction applied.
