When a filter is applied to using the 'Manage Query Filter' option, the filter will be applied to the entire report.


If we want the report to fetch only certain Pay Components, we can add a filter for the same, using the 'Manage Query Filter' option.
This however, would result in excluding all the users who do to have a any Pay Components as well.

If the filter is applied using the 'Edit Restriction' option, it will be applied only to table under concern (Ex: Compensation).
And since the table is connected to the Driving table though Left Joins, the information from the rest of the tables will not be affected by such a filter.
(Left Joins show all records from the object on the left and only records that match from the object on the right.)

  1. Navigate to the Objects tab and click the table icon beside the desired table
  2. Access the edit restrictions section for that table, by clicking the filter icon


  3. Filters applied here, will only impact the selected table
