Is it possible to filter on an Y-axis item to show only what is selected in stacked column chart?

Thank you in advance to everyone that will read an try to answer.


Seems is not possible to filter based on the selection of an item of the legend of a stacker column chart or from the item in a stacked cloumn. The only result of selection is to hilight the lements of the same category.

The item selected is based on Y-axis of the following visual (the grouped element is a SUM of a table field):
