Configure Object Filters
You can filter on as few or as many criteria as you want. The more categories you filter by, the fewer results you should expect.
- Click the Objects menu.
- Check the Object Issues you want to filter by. If you check more than one, objects in any of the categories you check are included in your filtered results.
- To search for previously ignored unused, duplicate, or inconsistent objects, check Ignored.
- Check Shared if you are searching for shared objects.
- Check the Object Types you want to filter by.
- If you want to further restrict your filter to particular devices:
- Add your device name to the Device search field.
- Select the result you want to add to the Device field.
- Check the box for the device you want to include in the filter.
- You can also add an object name, IP address, or port number to the Objects search field to further refine the results.
