Just so that it is clear - i need to generate multiple reports(based on multiple filters) to a single person. Since i don't see any option to add multiple filters and generate reports for each of those filters in nprinting-my plan was to create multiple excel files carrying the filters for the same guy and on each iteration, run the import task and generate the report so that, each time nprinting picks up a new filter and delivers multiple report as per those filters to the same user. Let me know if you're not clear with my objective.
"...Am updating the filter value(say filter1) in the blue circle to a new filter value(filter2). After which I am running the import task."
My answer to that is that this is not a Filter Value - as it is only association between filter and user.
Filter value is stored under Filter Sheet in Excel (see screenshot in red framed areas)
"I was expecting the filter1 to be overwritten with filter2 in the nprinting console but I see that filter2 is present in addition to filter1, as below. I don't want this as I am planning to generate multiple reports to a single user(by way of importing multiple filters by running import task multiple times)"
You are trying to change association of user ans filter which is not going to work. Nprinting will not remove existing association, but will only add new ones
You can associate to User X filter A1 and A2 (in Excel import Spreadsheet you just put 2 values in USer Sheet-Column Filter = A1,A2
Then you got to Filter Sheet in Excel and you have to create 2 lines for:
Filter A1 - using Connectiopn 1 with some filtering to apply to report using Connection 1
Filter A2 - using Connection 2 with some filtering to apply to report using Connection 2
the way you are doing it now will not work as per one of my comments that Filters during update will behave like Roles and Group
existing associations with groups and roles (and Filters)will not be removed if not present in the update row. An import can only add associations with roles and groups for a user, but not remove them.

In my case, since its the same qliksense app from which I am generating reports - do you intend to say that I'll be needed to create "n" connections to implement "n" filters to a single user so that user can get "n" reports ?
