updateData() resets the filter defined in the slice

Jesper Bo Rasmussen asked on August 19, 2019

As i read the documentation (https://www.flexmonster.com/api/updatedata/) the slice and therefor also the filters, should stay the same when calling updateData(), but as my fiddle below illustrates, the filter is removed.
Am i doing anything wrong, or is this a bug?

Hello Jesper,
Thank you for writing to us.
Yes, you are right. Such behavior does not look correct.
Our dev team needs to spend some time investigating the issue. We will notify you of the results ETA Sep 9.
Please let us know in case of any other question.

I have discovered a new bug.
If flexmonster is initialized without data or with only json-metadata, the filters are not set.
So when loading data later with updateData(), the filters are missing.
This new example illustrates the problem

Hello, Jesper,
Thank you for writing to us.
We would like to explain that this happens due to the fact that there are no members to exclude when the report is created.
Since the updateData() API call does not reset the slice, the filter is not reapplied.
Unfortunately, we don’t have the possibility to change the described behavior at the moment.
However, there is a quick and simple workaround:
Our team kindly suggests setting the needed filter via the setFilter() API call after updateData().
Please let us know if you have any questions.
Best Regards,

Hi Vera
Thanks for the quick reply.
I will look into if that suits our needs, or I have further questions.
