I need to create one map atlas for each municipal administration filtering the coverage layer (red rectangles = map sheets) by municipal administrations boundaries layer (green polygons). How is it possible to solve this problem? enter image description here

    can't you just use the municipal boundaries as the atlas coverage? – Ian Turton Nov 26 '18 at 8:50

    What have you tried so far and how is it not working? – bugmenot123 Nov 26 '18 at 9:32
  • a) The layout created refers to the map sheet with a fixed scale of 1: 10000. b) I tried to create an intersection layer (map sheets - municipal boundaries) but I don't know how to create an expression that dynamically link each element of the intersection layer to the coverage layer and I have not found any example about. I also thought about the possibility of a spatial query but I have not found any example that concern atlas generation. – Andrew-63 Nov 26 '18 at 11:04

First in atlas use the municipality green polygon by some name or code, then in the properties from red polygons use symbology by rules, and in the expression use intersection(@geometry,@atlas_geometry), with this solutions I did something similar, my result was the municipality green, and the red polygons
