Hierarchy of Object Filters/Explicit Content in a User Defined Module


When defining a User Define Module (see User Defined Module editor), it is possible to combine various different filter options. This page explains how the filters function together:

User Defined Modules

A User Defined Module can consist of 0 to N Object Filters (defined in the Filter tab in the User Defined Module editor) and 0 to 1 Explicit Content (defined in the Explicit Conten tab in the User Defined Module editor). The result of these options is derived using a UNION between the Object Filter(s) and the Explicit Content.

Object Filters

An Object Filter can target objects using an INTERSECTION of the various filter types. A target object must:

  • (if the filter is active) belong to a filtered Technology
  • (if the filter is active) AND belong to one of the selected Analysis Units that function using a UNION between Analysis Units
  • (if the filter is active) AND match a selected Object Type that function using a UNION between Object Types
  • (if the filter is active) AND match one of the expressions on the Object Name, Object Full Name and Object Path that function using a UNION between expressions.
Child Objects

Object Filters return objects and all child objects.

    Note that if you want to use 'Explicit Module filtering' then you MUST DELETE all object filters that are defined in the 'Filters' tab of the Module.  Note that this includes the "My Object Filter" filter that is automatically created when you create a User Defined Module.
