Definition

This page allows one to perform the general configuration for filters. For Event Filter configuration, see corresponding entry https://vidispine.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/IES/pages/1951892414#Event-Filters .

  • Enable or disable the workspace option

  • Define if workspaces should be listed (for all users) above or below the filter

  • Is the global definition of filter value sorting either alphabetically or by amount

  • The user can adjust the sorting on their own

  • Filter card handling: Disabled → Only one filter open at a time, Enabled → Multiple open filter cards

  • Show pre-defined date field values - Will show on every Date field the option to select a fixed time frame:

  • User defined sorting - allows the users to change sorting on filters manually

Define metadata values which are listed as filters.

Note: In order to display items and collections under MediaType, add both values to the filter.

All item/collection related metadata can be picked for the filter.

Depending Filters

Set relations between values from a specific metadata field and open corresponding metadata field on filters.

Left: Source metadata and values that opens another filter card

Right: Target metadata card which is visible once a corresponding value on source has been selected

Example

I want to open the duration filter when video is selected on mediaType

1: Open Control, Search for metadata mediaType and add to the left bag

2: Open Detailed Configuration on the context menu button '…'

3: Select value from drop down which a user can select and should open a new Filter Card

4: Select metadata which should be opened to the right bag

Hint: For adding additional Value - Field relations add multiple entries. E.g. Open Duration and Keywords if the user enables video. Create config relation for Mediatype video → Duration & Mediatype video → keywords

Be aware, that not all configurable controls options in this control have an effect on the Filter relation.

Depending [Deprecated]

Legacy Configuration for depending Filter configuration. Not used in 21.3 Release anymore

Based on a selected value from a filter, other filters will be added automatically. There might be types, which are only relevant for video and audio such as duration. As a result, you can configure a dependency for that specific value. So the duration filter will only be shown if a user select video or audio from the MediaType filter.

Name: Display name of config entry on ConfigPortal.

Source Metadata: Select the metadata field which holds different values.

Source Metadata Value: Insert value which needs to be ticked in order to open additional filter card. This configuration is currently only available as string. Please carefully copy the value from a drop down definition and fill it in here.

Depending Metadata: Additional filter card that is opened on previously defined value.

Please note that each dependency on a value requires an additional configuration entry.

Event Filters

The set of Event Filter can be configured independently from the Filter on Card-,Table & Event View.

  • Is the definition of filter value sorting either Alphabetical or By Amount

  • Filter card handling: Disabled → Only one filter open at a time, Enabled → Multiple open filter cards

  • The user can adjust the sorting by its own

Please note that in order to display items and collections under MediaType, add both values to the filter.

All item/collection related metadata can be picked for the filter:
