Select a path

You can select a path within a path browser to create filters that include data associated with the elements in the path.
When you select a path of base dimension elements within a path browser, you are selecting data for the corresponding elements of the level dimension.
For example, suppose that you have created a path browser showing pages of a website. Each page is an element of the Page dimension, and the level dimension for Page is Page View. When you select a path of pages in a path browser, you are selecting data for the page views associated with those pages.
You can change the default level dimension for a path browser. For instructions to configure a path browser, see Configuring Path Browsers .
  1. Click an element in the path browser to extend the displayed path to the left or right of the root.
  2. Right-click the desired element and click Select path . The selected path is outlined in white.
    You cannot select a start or end node.
  3. Repeat Step 1 for each element that you wish to add to the path.
    For example, if you are working with website data, you could select a path of pages on your website.
    This path constitutes a selection, and all other open visualizations in the workspace (including legends) update to display data associated with the path created by the selected elements. See Making Selections in Visualizations .
