Filters

Each setting type has a filter button Login AM Working With Settings Filter.png. This button can be used to assign different values to a setting, based on filter expressions. Filter expressions are string values that allow for configurations to be applied or discarded based on the evaluation of one or more filters. Filters are small snippets that yield either true or false. An example of such a filter is the FileExist filter.
