    How to store per-user report filter settings in the database?

    Mike Chabot Level 1

      To accomplish the goal of storing report filter settings for each user, such that those filter settings are still in place if a user later returns to the report, I usually take a structure that contains the filter settings, turn the structure into WDDX, and store the WDDX text in a database varchar column. I would assume some people now use JSON in place of WDDX.

       

      Does anyone else have a different solution for this goal?

       

      By report I am referring to any set of data that a user sees and can apply a filter/search pattern to, not any specific reporting technology.

       

      Thank you,
