Using components: Filter

Use the Filter component to filter input records by defining conditions that must be met by the data.

To filter records, add a Filter component where required in your package.

Specifying conditions

  1. In the drop-down list on the left, select a field or type in an expression, to manipulate fields (read more about expressions and functions).
  2. In the second drop-down list, select the operator as follows:
    Operator Description
    text equals The expression on the left must be equal to the string value on the right. The text should not be enclosed in quotes or escaped.
    text not equals The expression on the left must not be equal to the string value on the right. The text should not be enclosed in quotes or escaped.
    text matches The expression on the left must must match the regular expression string value on the right. The text should not be enclosed in quotes or escaped. For example, matching a string field with .*dog.* would pass any string that contains the string dog: dog,dogs,adogmatic
    text is empty The expression on the left must be empty.
    text is not empty The expression on the left must not be empty.
    = The expression on the left must be equal to the expression on the right.
    != The expression on the left must not be equal to the expression on the right.
    > The expression on the left must be greater than the expression on the right.
    >= The expression on the left must be greater than or equal to the expression on the right.
    < The expression on the left must be less than the expression on the right.
    <= The expression on the left must be less than or equal to the expression on the right.
    is null The expression on the left must be null.
    is not null The expression on the left must not be null.
  3. In the last text box, type the value that the condition will filter for.

Combining conditions

  1. Under conditions, indicate how to combine them:
    • all - selects records with values that meet all conditions specified (logical "AND")
    • any - selects records with values that meet any of the conditions specified (logical "OR")
    • none -  selects records that don't meet any of the conditions specified (logical "NOT AND")
  2. Add additional conditions as required.
  3. To nest conditions, press Shift while hovering on the blue + icon until the icon changes to a blue right arrow and click it.
