Add a filter

How to

  1. From the Select Dimension menu, choose a dimension by which to filter.
    The dimension appears as a filter item accompanied by a menu and a Select Items box.
  2. From the menu, select how you would like your box values to be treated by the filter (The selections available here will depend on which dimension you chose):
    • Match Any. The filter matches any of the box values.
    • Match All. The filter matches all of the box values.
    • Does Not Match Any. The filter excludes any of the box values.
    • Starts With. This selection allows you to create filters that match a “starts with” condition, which is helpful if you would like to filter content that begins with the match condition.
    • Does Not Start With. This selection allows you to create filters that match a “does not start with” condition, which is helpful if you would like to filter content that does not begin with the match condition.
    • Ends With. This selection allows you to create filters that match an “ends with” condition, which is helpful if you would like to filter content that ends with the match condition.
    • Contains. This selection allows you to filter content that contains the match condition.
    • Greater Than. If you are creating a filter with the reputation score dimension, this selection allows you to create filters that match scores that are greater than the values you enter.
    • Less Than. If you are creating a filter with the reputation score dimension, this selection allows you to create filters that match scores that are less than the values you enter.
    Note: If you use the Contains or Ends With operators, limit the time range to 24 hours at maximum.
  3. If the selected dimension is either Path or Query, click to specify the case-sensitivity of the match condition.
    Note: If you select Case-Insensitive from the menu, limit the time range to 24 hours at maximum.
  4. In the Select Items box, depending on the dimension you’re working with, click in the box and choose an item from the resulting menu, or enter a value of your own choosing, as appropriate.
    Note: For ease of use, you can copy and paste comma- or tab-delimited values in this box.
    If you’d like to remove an entry, click the x at the its right-hand side. To remove all of a dimension’s entries click the X button at the right-hand side of the Select Items box.
    To remove a dimension and its entries, click the X button at the upper right-hand corner of the dimension’s area. To clear all dimensions and their entries, click the Clear All button at the bottom of the filter area.
  5. If you wish to add another dimension to the filter, click the Add button and repeat the above steps.
  6. Using the Apply filter by slider, select Request or Rule, as desired.
    A request-based filter applies its conditions to the requests and all the related rules that triggered. Rule-based filters apply the conditions on a per-rule basis.
  7. Click the Apply button.
    The filter appears in the filter area, and the display refreshes to present the filtered data.
