Adding a filter to a category
This procedure shows how to customize filter behavior by adding filters to a category.
To add a filter to a category:
Select the root category from the Root nodes list table. The Category tree section is populated by the nodes nested under the selected root category.
Select a category to overwrite the default global settings. To find a specific category, start entering its name in the Search field, and the results will be automatically highlighted in Category tree.
After selecting a category, the Category Filters for [Category name] frame opens to show the current configuration.
Categories in the category tree view that have manually defined filter settings are marked with a pencil icon next to their name.
Start typing the name of the existing filter in the Add filter field. As you type, the autocompleted drop-down appears, so you can select a filter there.
After selecting the filter, click Add. The filter appears in the Active filters list.
Once done, click Save.
Tips and tricks Clicking Reset to global settings in Category Filters for [Category name] removes the customized filter settings.
To reorder filters, In Active filters, drag and drop them to the necessary place.
