Hello,

 

We have created a new CustomDimension to differentiate our Environments(QA,PROD ) and applied using it as Filter to filter the data.However we would also want to apply the same custom dimension on Historical data(Old Data). How can we apply the filter on Existing Data.

Thank you!

I don't think that is possible.

Try using host name in filters if you had different host names for two env.

The reason for going with custom dimension is to avoid using hostnames because they can change over period of time . So we had to either have some Query parameters ( not sure of implementation) or using custom dimension(Which i suggested)
