When you apply the advanced filter to a selected view, Network Inventory refers to the database and retrieves data according to the specified filter criteria.
You can create and apply the advanced filters as follows:
Design the filter by using the specially provided graphical filter builder, then apply the filter.
Directly specify the SQL WHERE clause for filtering the data, then apply the filter (recommended for advanced SQL users only).
Once you applied the filter, Network Inventory updates view title with the (Filter Applied) ending displayed both above the grid and in the status bar (for details, see Menus and Toolbars). To use the configured filter criteria more than once, you can save the view with the applied filter (for details, see Working with views).
NOTE: If you have limited the number of records to retrieve (for details, see Limiting the number of records to retrieve), it is recommended that you use the Advanced Filter condition.
