Make a selection in a visual part of the default view of the report

HI all,


I am building a report and the data has several "disciplines". I have a Clustered Column chart on the page that has all the disciplines listed.


One of the disciplines is "Total". 


I am trying to find a way to have the "Total" discipline selected in the clustered column visual so that the other visuals are filters for "Total" discipline by default when the report is opened. I have published the report withth e selection in the visual but when I open the published report, the selection is not retained.


Current default view:



Desired default view:


Any thoughts?

@pfrohling , Save the file with filter(drill), publish the file, clear browser cache, open the report on power bi service and check. Check clear cache can help
