Selectable axes data combined with grouped filtering capabilities on the same plot in Bokeh


I am trying to create a Bokeh plot where I can change the data plotted on each axis using a select box, whilst also allowing me to filter data points using check box group.

The data that I have is a mixture of categorical and numeric. An example of the .csv can be found here.

I am able to change the data the axes plot using this solution (not using CDS or CustomJS). I am aware of Bokeh issue #8421, which is the reason for choosing this solution to have the ability to choose the categoric and numeric data plotted on the axes.

I can implement grouped filtering using the solution from the Community Support entry 8747/8 (using CDS and CustomJSFilter).

However, I am having trouble combining both capabilities in the same plot. Is there a way to do this, please?

My current code trying to combine both capabilities is below. I cannot get the filtering component to work.

        y_title = y.value.title()

        kw = dict()

    controls = column(x, y, color, size, width=200)
    layout = row(controls, create_figure(), row(column(Title1, Parameter_2_cbg), column(Title2, Parameter_3_cbg), column(Title3, Parameter_4_cbg)))


server = Server({'/': bkapp}, num_procs=1)

if __name__ == '__main__':
    print('Opening Bokeh application on http://localhost:5006/')

    server.io_loop.add_callback(, "/")

Any help would be much appreciated.

Kind regards,
