Reproducing the Issue

  1. Login to instance
  2. Under Reporting
  3. Run a report and select run time filter
  4. Go back to reporting section, run another report and select run time filter, you will find the same filter values selected already which were selected for the first report.


The runtime filters and its selected values are not linked to a query and instead is linked to the session. This behavior can be seen with Duplicated reports or totally different queries but same runtime filters as this data is stored in the session.


We can clear/reset runtime filters on the report
