Filter Group

Definition

A filter group comprises one or more filters.

Use

Filter groups enable you to define complex criteria for filtering message types. Several filter groups can be defined for one message. A filter is always assigned to a filter group. The filter group is created automatically provided that the filter is not being added to an existing filter group.

Filter groups are linked disjunctively (with the logical operator OR).

Within a filter group filters are usually linked conjunctively (with the logical operator AND). Filter objects of the same name in the same filter group are linked with an OR operator. The dependencies of message types are linked conjunctively (with the logical operator AND).

 

The filter group comprises the following filters:

Plant 001
Plant 002
Division 01
Division 02
Distribution across classes
Dependency of message type MATMAS
Dependency of message type CREMAS

These result in the filter criteria:

(Plant 0001 OR plant 0002)

AND

(Division 01 OR division 02)

Distribution across classes
