Global filters allow you to quickly sort through elements in a
Silk Central area, highlighting only those that are relevant to your needs.
To view the details of a global filter, click
in the menu, and click on the name of the filter.
Silk Central area in which a new filter is available is defined by selecting the general filter category.
Each global filter has to have a property, an operator, and a value from the respective list boxes:
- Available properties depend on the filter category. It defines the property for which you are defining a filter setting.
If you selected an attribute category, the property list includes custom attributes to query against.
- Specifies the filter operator. The operator depends on the property type. For example, if you select a property that is based
on a string field type, the available operators are
= (equals defined value),
not (differs from the defined value),
contains (contains the defined value somewhere in the string), and
does not contain (does not contain the defined value in the string).
- The value that you want to filter out. Depending on the property type that you have selected, values will either be strings
that you can enter into the field, or a selection of predefined values that you can select from the list box.
