What is a filter?

The freely configurable filters of the PSR client provide all methods for easy retrieval of stored data. The filter criteria are always adapted according to the module in which you are currently located. When you select one or several search criteria, and click on “Apply filter”, the results will be displayed in the list view. If necessary, this process can be repeated as desired and further restrictions can be added.

Who is allowed to use the filter?

The filter is an indispensable working tool because of the possibility to restrict existing results according to individual requirements. Consequently, all users can use the filter. It is, of course, possible to place restrictions for filter criteria. This means that the possible filter criteria can be restricted for individual employees by means of permissions. For example, an employee could filter for the form password only if it had read permission for that form.

Application example

Filter without criteria

By selecting the required criteria and applying the filter using the button of the same name, the set of all the records corresponding to the criteria is displayed in the list view. If you used the filter without criteria, you would obtain a list of all data records to which you are entitled in general.

As you can see, 133 records are not really manageable. In most situations you will need to reduce the number of records by adding filters.

Adding filter criteria

The filter organization can be applied directly to the authorizations to restrict the number of records according to the authorizations granted. In this case, the logged-on user holds rights for various areas. However, it would like to see only those records which are assigned to the Own passwords area within the organisational structure. In addition, there should be further restrictions, which could be formulated as in the following sentence: “Deliver all records from my own passwords that were created with the form password and which contain the expression 2016 and the tag Administrator.

As can be seen, the filter delivers the desired results. The extent to which the filter criteria match the three remaining data sets is assigned in colour.

Content filter

The term * 2016 * is part of the description in the * My Schufa * record, part of the description of * Wordpress 2016 * and Microsoft Online 2016 . Since the search *“in all fields” is activated in the content filter, all three records are included in the results, and are displayed in the list view. You can also configure the content filter to search for expressions in a specific field. The icon next to the expression “in all fields” opens the content filter configuration in a modal window. As you can see it was configured that the content filter should only have the form * password *, and only the form field * Internet address * should be considered:

It is very easy to abstract, because of the present example, that the filter can be adapted to your personal requirements. It is thus the most important tool to be able to retrieve data once stored in the database.
