Filters for Enhanced Ecommerce

Follower ✭ ☆ ☆

Do filters fields like "Ecommerce Item name" work for Enhanced Ecommerce for Product List, Detail view reports, etc (i.e. not final transaction)?  I'm trying to rename some products and it doesn't seem to have any impact.  The settings I'm using are:

 

Filter type: Search and replace

Filter field: Ecommerce Item name

Search string: Product

Replace string: Product-

Hi Nick
Just trying to answer the same question...
I think the answer is that Search and Replace filters on product name only work for Standard Ecom not Enhanced. I've tested this to be the case, and also found a reference halfway down this Enhanced Ecom page https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6014872?hl=en
It says "Search-and-replace filters are not supported for either standard or custom product-level dimensions"

I'm just setting up a test using an Advanced filter rather than Search and Replace but I'm not hopeful...

I can confirm that the test using the advanced filter didn't work. At the same time I did a successful test manipulating the transaction id so I'm confident of my results... My conclusion is that there is no way to manipulate the enhanced ecom product name using filters... which is a pain!
