3053323 - Advanced Filters are greyed in Executive review


After enabling the advanced executive review filters, managers are getting error "Filter and Population functionalities aren't available, either because you don't have required permissions or the system couldn't load filter data. Please contact your administrator for help."

Executive review filters are loading when clicked on them. When advanced filters are disabled, filters load correctly.

Reproducing the Issue

Enable advanced filters in the advanced settings > As a manager access compensation > executive review and notice the filters are grayed out and see an error message as below. 


Missing permissions that are required to access the filters.


Executive Review Filters end-user data is being saved in MDF, so the permission to those MDF entities is required for the end-users. You can create a new permission role for the managers (or user who needs to access the filters) and grant the permissions to these three MDF objects.

Under miscellaneous permission:-

  • compfilterdefinition
  • compfilterdefinition.criteria
  • compfilterpopulation

NOTE: With b2305 release, advanced executive review filters are enabled by default. Please make sure the users with EXR permission have the above mentioned permissions configured to be able to use advanced EXR filters.
