All Fields are Filtered out of View When Filtering on Field from Secondary Data Source

Issue

When using blending and filtering a view based on a secondary field, all values might be filtered instead of the desired selection. 

Environment

Tableau Desktop

Resolution

In order to prevent this behavior use the following options:
  • Remove the Secondary Field from the Level of Detail of the view.
  • Do not use Blending on that Particular view.

Cause

When attempting the same filtering without blending, a combined field is created to filter a specific value. When using blending it is not possible to have such a field and so one filter is created per field.
