Create Filter Extensions for PerformancePoint Services
Last modified: August 30, 2011
To add a custom filter to PerformancePoint Services in Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010, you must create a filter extension.
Applies to: SharePoint Server 2010
Filter extensions consist of the following components:
A data provider that interacts with the filter's underlying data source.
An editor that creates and updates a filter object.
A renderer for a filter selection control. A custom renderer is required only if your filter does not use a native PerformancePoint Services selection control. The filter described in this documentation uses a native renderer for the filter selection control.
Metadata in the web.config file that integrates the extension into PerformancePoint Services.
This section contains topics that describe how to create an editor and a data provider for a filter. For information about the extension metadata, see How to: Manually Register PerformancePoint Services Extensions.
