Lock lens from filters


I am currently trying to create a filter selector that is not a dropdown. Since there are no checkboxes, I'm trying to use a pie chart as the selector.

Is it possible to create a checkbox list, and if not, to prevent a lens from being affected by filters so it always stays the same?

Thank you :slight_smile:

Or is it possible to choose a saved query from a more visual thing than tye button on the top left corner?

Hi there,

unfortunately, the 'ignore global filters' setting only exists in TSVB at the moment. There's an issue open that you can upvote "Ignore Global Filter" for all visualization types · Issue #17789 · elastic/kibana · GitHub about this topic.

For quick selecting the items, you could either create multiple filters and check/uncheck them (click with Shift to quickly toggle) or you could use control visualization.

Thank you for your quick answer.

I see the GitHub post is from 2018. Is there any chance it will be selected in a close future?
