Mandatory or queried filters for the dashboards


There are DeepSee dashboards,  which make sense only when filtered.

Usually, they are used as Drill Target or New_window control with SETTINGS=Widget;FILTER=filtervalue.

Is there a way to hide such dashboard from the Catalog or/and request the filter value once it is opened by User?

I do not think there is a way to ask the user to select a user before displaying the dashboard. 

Maybe you can try setting the filter as required in the dashboard settings and as default value using a run-time variable. The run-time variable should return the current username. To return the current user start from the COS $username special variable.
