Create Filter Extensions for PerformancePoint Services

SharePoint 2010

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.
