  • There are only certain standard elements which can be displayed as RBP filters. You can find a full list of these fields from this help guide.
  • The below instructions will only allow you to create your own custom list of standard element RBP filters of which you can only select from this list.
  • When you create your own standard elements with the below instructions you will be overwriting the filters available by default
  • If you add a standard element to DGFilters like below, you will always see "user" and "team view" by default as these are always 2 default fields available with DGfilters along with the standard elements you add in Manage Business Configuration > Filters > Dynamic Group Filters > DGFilters

(So for example if you do not have any standard elements added per below - you will see the full list of standard elements as default in RBP - if you then add in any standard element, for example "city" you are replacing the full list as default with just "city" and because "team view" and "users" will always be displayed you will have just these 3 filters available in RBP. HRIS elements are not affected by this, just the standard elements)

If you add in any other standard element other than what is listed here, it will not be displayed in RBP filters

If you replace the default standard element list by adding your own custom list of filters and leave out standard elements currently used in permission groups, you will no longer see the filter used in the group and if you try to check the members list you will receive the error outlined in KBA 2899566

  1. Go to: Manage Business Configuration > Filters > Dynamic Group Filters > DGFilters
