The allow-filter is being ignored when my grid data comes from datamanger

Hi Support:

I have an issue with the filtering in a grid whose data comes from a datamanager as follows:

<ej-grid id="grid"
                    <e-datamanager url="/Order/Datasource" adaptor="UrlAdaptor" />

The filter icons are being displayed, but when you set a filter, it is ignored.

Any ideas.

Hi David. 
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support. 
 We have analyzed your and we suspect that you would like to perform Filtering operation when using UrlAdaptor in grid. When using the UrlAdaptor we suggest you to perform server side operation in grid when performing sorting, filtering, paging, grouping etc.., 
Refer the code example. 
<ej-grid id="FlatGrid" allow-paging="true" allow-filtering="true" > 
    <e-filter-settings filter-type="Excel"></e-filter-settings> 
   <e-datamanager url="/Home/DataSource" adaptor="UrlAdaptor"></e-datamanager> 
        <e-column field="OrderID" header-text="Order ID" is-primary-key="true" text-align="Right" width="75"></e-column> 
         <e-column field="CustomerID" header-text="Customer ID"  width="75"></e-column> 
          <e-column field="ShipCity" header-text="Ship City" width="75"></e-column> 
In the server side we can get it from the DataManager Class which contains the object for every grid actions like filtering, sorting, grouping, skip and take (i.e paging) etc..,  

Refer the code example. 
public ActionResult DataSource([FromBody]DataManager dm)//Using DataManager class which contains Sorting, filtering as a parameter.   
        {….    } 
Please refer the below code example which contains server side operations. Using DataOperations class each actions in grid takes place. 

using Syncfusion.JavaScript.DataSources; 
using Syncfusion.Linq; 
using Syncfusion.JavaScript.Models; 
  public ActionResult DataSource([FromBody]DataManager dm) 
            IEnumerable data = orddata; 
            DataOperations operation = new DataOperations(); 
            if (dm.Sorted != null && dm.Sorted.Count > 0) //Sorting 
                data = operation.PerformSorting(data, dm.Sorted); 
            if (dm.Where != null && dm.Where.Count > 0) //Filtering 
                data = operation.PerformWhereFilter(data, dm.Where, dm.Where[0].Operator); 
            int count = data.Cast<Orders>().Count(); 
            if (dm.Skip != 0) 
                data = operation.PerformSkip(data, dm.Skip); 
            if (dm.Take != 0) 
                data = operation.PerformTake(data, dm.Take); 
            return Json(new { result = data, count = count }); 
Refer the KB link of how to perform server side grid actions 
We have also prepared a sample that can be downloaded from the below link.
