In the View Filter Designer view you can add and remove filters which define the selection of actions or model elements that are included in the analysis, actions, or navigator view. This view can be accessed through the View Designer View. Note that you can resize the window by dragging from the corner of the window with your mouse. Increasing the size of the window enables viewing e.g. long custom attribute names.


A filter can be defined by first selecting the desired logical operator option from the drop-down box containing the "and" and "or" operators (not available for the first filter). After defining the operator, select the attribute the filtering is based on from the drop-down menu. The rest of the contents of the view depends on the selected attribute. See the table below for listing of possible combinations. Note that all attributes are not available in all views, i.e. the selection of attributes depends on whether you are working with the analysis view for Processes, Scorecards, or Actions tab. In addition, the field that filtering is based on needs to be included in the view in order for the filtering to work correctly. In addition, text used in filters is not case sensitive, so for instance Name + contains "Process" works similarly as Name + contains "process".


To apply the filter to textual values (values that are in a text type series), select the Text check box.


In the case you combine multiple filters with the "and" and "or" operators, note that the operators have equal priority and they are applied from left to right. For example, in the case there is a filter expression1 or expression2 and expression3 or expression4, it is equal to ((expression1 or expression2) and expression3) or expression4.


Click the Add button to add a filter and Remove button to delete a defined filter.

contains, does not contain, is, is not, role name is.

With custom attributes you also need to select the custom attribute that is filtered.

Input text for the filter. The difference between the contains/does not contain and is/is not options is that the first filters check whether the attribute includes or does not include the text in the selected attribute, and the latter filters check whether the attribute text is or is not exactly the typed text.


In the Actions tab: "(is any of the following)"

Input the desired value into the text field. Define also the period and series as well as period offset. The period offset allows you to e.g. display values of two different periods simultaneously. This can be done by having e.g. two fields that display a value included in the table and for instance configuring the first field to display the value of the current period and configuring the second field to display value for a period that is as many periods before or after the current period as defined in the offset, which can be a positive or a negative integer value.
