Areas

Allows the user to select one or multiple filtering patterns, for the run-time component's measurements. If an entity is used in multiple filter patterns, the duplicates will be automatically removed, resulting in a unique collection of i4connected entities. The filtering patterns support the wildcard filtering mechanism, by using the “*” wildcard.

To add Areas filter patterns, the user can click the Expand array list button.

The view is updated to display the Add new item button. As soon as the Add new item button is clicked, the user can click on the Expand the list button, to view the list of Areas, available for the current project.

Note

The list of entities is by default filtered to show all possible combinations. The "*" wildcard means "any".

The user can define filter patterns, as follows:

  • by manually selecting one or multiple Areas, from the list view;

  • by inserting specific combinations of character patterns, using the "*" wildcard.

To preserve the selection, the Apply button needs to be clicked.

Auto update

Allows the user to specify whether the updating should happen automatically or not. When this option is enabled the component pulls interval for data and updates it automatically. The Filter object property must be also filled, when enabling the Auto update property.
