HI @Sreya,

I'd like to suggest you take a look at the official document specific characters to handle part if they helped:

Filter a report using query string parameters in the URL#special-characters-in-url-filters 

If these not help, you can add a calculated column to your table with a common name. (copy the value from 'specific characters' column and use this to replace the raw field in URL filter)

@Sreya , not very clear to me. Base on what I got is that you need dynamic url

@amitchandak I am having a column name 'ContractKey/EngagementKey'. While I try to pass filter on this column the target report is not getting filtered. It is happenning because the column name contains '/ ' in it.

Anyway we can solve this by using escape character or something like that?

@Sreya , Try

/ %2F

Previous generated URL

After appending %2F ---Newly Generated URL

filter=Project%2FContractKey%2F%2FEngagementKey%20in%20(%27791751%27,%27791824%27,%271025638%27)

 

It is not passing the column name as 'ContractKey/EngagementKey'
