Filter Configuration

Responder Explorer filters allow you to refine your display in the Incident Grid. Responder Explorer includes several filters out of the box, but you might desire to create some custom filters for additional refinement of your display. Define a filter in the ControlStylesConfig.xml. Search for FilterFinder in this file to locate the following lines that exist in the code by default:
            <FilterFinder Key="IncidentGrid_MyIncidents" FilterFinderType="Filter”>
              <Evaluator>Obj:Miner.Responder.Explorer.Evaluators.OwnerIsThisUserEvaluator,Miner.Responder.Explorer</Evaluator>
              <Caption>My Incidents</Caption>
              <Description>My Incidents in My Regions</Description>
            </FilterFinder>

The above code serves as an example filter for Responder Explorer. The begin tag (first line of code above) and end tag (last line of code above) are necessary for the filter to work appropriately.

  • The Evaluator tag defines what is filtered.

  • Use the Caption tag to indicate what shows up in the Explorer filter drop-down.

The following code examples show different ways to configure Evaluators in Vbs.

CriticalCustomer = Critical Incident Filter:

            <FilterFinder Key="IncidentGrid_CriticalFilter" FilterFinderType="Filter”>
              <Evaluator>Vbs:[CriticalCustomer] > 0</Evaluator>
              <Caption>Critical</Caption>
              <Description>Critical Incidents in My Regions</Description>
            </FilterFinder>

Incident Status = Active:

            <FilterFinder Key="IncidentGrid_ActiveIncidents" FilterFinderType="Filter”>
              <Evaluator>Vbs:[Status] < 3</Evaluator>
              <Caption>Active</Caption>
              <Description>Active Incidents in My Regions</Description>
            </FilterFinder>

Incident Status = Complete:

            <FilterFinder Key="IncidentGrid_CompleteIncidents" FilterFinderType="Filter”>
              <Evaluator>Vbs:[Status] < 3</Evaluator>
              <Caption>Complete</Caption>
              <Description>Complete Incidents in My Regions</Description>
            </FilterFinder>
